Use Curated Data
An efficient load-on-demand mechanism makes hundreds of gigabytes of carefully curated and continually updated data immediately available inside Mathematica
for use in computations. This data, curated at Wolfram Research, can be accessed and processed in a coherent way.
to load an image of the Earth:
to view a 3D molecule plot of a protein:
Get a list of all the individual objects (or "entities") in AstronomicalData
. Since this list is very long, only a very short sample of its beginning and end is returned:
Determine how many entities there are:
Display the first 40 entities:
to see the available entity classes in AstronomicalData
. You can see that classes are types of objects:
One of the classes is "Planet"
. Show the list of planets in our solar system:
to see the specific data types associated with any class or entity:
Mass is one of these data types. View the mass of Saturn:
Discover the satellites of Saturn:
Determine the number of entities in GraphData
Display the classes in GraphData
Display the 705th
entity in GraphData
Show an image of a graph in GraphData
. In this case, the image is shown by default, without having to specify "Image"
Explore the properties of TriangleReplacedCoxeterGraph
Display the first 25 properties of the above graph:
Show the chromatic number of "TriangleReplacedCoxeterGraph"
Show the classes that "TriangleReplacedCoxeterGraph"
Explore the properties of the stevedore knot in KnotData
Show the image of this knot:
Show the braid diagram of the knot:
to see the properties of a chemical:
Show the other standard names of the chemical:
See the molecular plot of "4-MethoxyCinnamicAcid"
Display its structure diagram:
to see the first 25 data types associated with a country:
View the agricultural products of the United States:
to access information about stocks and other financial entities.
Calculate the ratio of the United States dollar to the euro:
Find the latest price for General Electric stock:
Plot the trading volume for General Electric for the first 11 months of 2003:
Curated data integrates well with other Mathematica
Access different properties for chemical elements simultaneously:
Put this data in a table and add row and column headers by prepending them to the list:
