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-importor 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.
