Data Explorer

One of the goals of this project is to make data on political prisoners easy to explore, export, and integrate into other projects. There are a number of pages you can use to find what you're looking for. If there is any data you'd like to see made easier to access or export, or if you have any trouble with any of the pages below, please get in touch. If you have a specific query like: prisoners in Wales without support groups, you can use the bulk export options.

Each page has various formats (page, RSS, CSV, etc). The page is how you view it on the site, RSS is a way to syndicate content to your website, and CSV is an exportable format similar to a spreadsheet. RSS can be used, for example, to have a sidebar on your website to show the newest political prisoner or an updating list of prisoners that take BitCoin. CSV is most useful for batch processing of data and can be used to make a list of all prisoners in your area and their various mailing addresses.

Bulk Export (advanced):

If you want to export all or large portions of the site data, you can use the links below. These pages do not look pretty, but they will export the data in CSV format so you can work with them in Excel/LibreOffice Writer/other database and spreadsheet programs. You can select which fields you want to export and all fields are available. To export CSV data, go to the bottom of the page and click on the CSV button. Be sure to filter the data first!
