Importing Data Sets

The Zip files in the following section contain the contents of a Neo4j graph.db directory. To use them:

  • Stop your Neo4j server
  • Extract the file into /path/to/neo/data/graph.db
  • Start the server again
  • Open the Neo4j Web Interface
  • Read about the Cypher Query Language
  • Follow the source links for some example Cypher queries
  • All data sets are compatible with Neo4j version 1.6 and later

You can also point the neo4j-shell to the extracted directory to run Cypher queries directly:

/path/to/neo/bin/neo4j-shell -path /path/to/graph.db
