GDELTtools: Download, slice, and normalize GDELT data
Version 1.2

The GDELT data set is over 60 GB now and growing 100 MB a month. The number of source articles has increased over time and unevenly across countries. This package makes it easy to download a subset of that data, then normalize that data to facilitate valid time series analysis.
