Hosted on Google BigQuery, it already indexes more than a quarter billion rows from the last 35 years, and grows daily with all the latest events and news. Join Google Developer Advocate Felipe Hoffa on his trip to meet Kalev Leetaru – the creator of the GDELT project, Louisa Koch – NOAA Education Director, and Amanda Traud – Data Scientist at L-3 Data Tactics.
