For many researchers, accessing the public API for the COVID-19 Federated Data Image will be enough for their research goals. The public API provides fetch access to many Data Lake objects, and metrics access to some time series data such as case data.



Training Curriculum

Following this guide is enough to get started.

You’ll need to have asked for access to see the API doc pages:

  1. Go to the API docs link, choose “Get Access” from the left sidebar, and fill out the simple form.
  2. Follow the “Confirm Email” link in the email you receive automatically upon submitting the form (subject: "C3 AI COVID-19 Data Lake - Confirm Email").
    Note: Save that email! There is no account creation to access the API, but you will need to follow the "Confirm Email" link again if you access from another browser in the future, if your cookies get cleared, etc.

Official C3 Public COVID-19 API Documentation

Official C3 AI documentation related to the COVID-19 Data Lake Public API. This documentation:

Researchers may find they do not need to read all of this document. We recommend reading at least to the section 'Using APIs'. The rest of the document gives examples on how to fetch the various available data types.

Example Workflows

Follow these examples to more fully understand the C3 AI platform and compose more complex data analysis.
