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 timeseries analysis.

GetGDELT is used to download and subset data.
NormEventCounts takes the output from
GetGDELT and normalizes the
counts appropriately for conducting time series analysis.
