Tech & Innovation Essentials

Technology-focused reference and activity data including web domains, US patents, GitHub repos, and IMEI type allocation codes


This product includes technology-focused reference and activity data centered around new innovations in technology.

Example topics covered include:

  • A repository of over 300M web domains cleaned and aggregated in a standardized format, including redirects and HTTP response status

  • GitHub stars, pull requests, and issues across users and repos

  • US patent grants and inventor information

  • IMEI Type Allocation Codes (TAC)

  • OpenAlex index of scholarly entities (e.g. works, sources, authors, funders, publishers) and how they are connected to one another

Data Sources, Attributes, Sample Queries

A detailed description of the data is available by source. Source pages include key attributes (e.g. geographic coverage, time granularity, history, entity level), release frequency, notes & methodologies, and sample queries.

All Cybersyn products follow the EAV (entity, attributes, value) model with a unified schema. Entities are tangible objects (e.g. geography, company) that Cybersyn provides data on. All timeseries' dates and values that refer to the entity are included in a timeseries table. Descriptors of the timeseries are included in an attributes table. Data is joinable across all Cybersyn products that have a GEO_ID. Refer to Cybersyn Concepts for more details.

As with all Public Domain datasets, Cybersyn aims to release data on Snowflake Marketplace as soon as the underlying source releases new data. We check periodically for changes to the underlying source and, upon detecting a change, propagate the data to Snowflake Marketplace immediately. See our release process for more details.
