Editor’s Note: Don’t miss this live webinar with Mar Cabra on how the ICIJ used Neo4j to unravel the Panama Papers happening today (26 May) at 9:00 PDT / 18:00 CEST. Click here to register or for more info.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) used Neo4j to power their investigation of how the various entities were connected in the Panama Papers.

Initially they released the CSV files which you could use with neo4j-import or on the command-line interface. Now, they’ve also released the data as a Neo4j database bundled with a Neo4j installation.

You can download the data directly from their website.

I created a short video showing how you can get started with the Mac distribution:

We’ve also recently released Neo4j 3.0.1 on Docker, and I wanted to show how you could quickly start analyzing the Panama Papers on Docker with one simple command:

docker run -p 7474:7474 ryguyrg/neo4j-panama-papers

I hope you enjoy playing with this data! I’m looking forward to hearing about what you find on Twitter using #neo4j.

It seems that the url where the dataset is hosted is broken:

How can i take advantage of the panama papers-ready neo4j docker image?

Thank you.

JT says:

I think we have to contact the ICIJ, who hosts the files.

I was able to download the files in a ~39MB .zip file from them at the address given in the article. You can load the data into neo4j from there
