IAEA introduces IAEA Data Platform for greater accessibility to scientific data

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has recently introduced the IAEA Data Platform, aiming to enhance accessibility to scientific data for decision-makers, experts, and the public. This centralized platform streamlines access to various publicly shared datasets, promoting efficient maintenance and standardization. Users, including Member States, researchers, and scientists, can visualize and download data in various formats.

Key datasets on the platform include the Incident and Trafficking Database, focusing on unauthorized activities involving nuclear material, and the Modaria Dataset, providing radionuclide and stable isotope soil-plant concentration ratios for tropical environments. Categorized under Nuclear Safety and Security, Nuclear Technology and Applications, and Safeguards and Verification, the platform offers tools such as filtering options, tags, and an activity panel to enhance data overview and accessibility.

A notable feature is the application programming interface (API) option, allowing remote access to data through systems. This feature ensures users always have access to the latest data and enables researchers to analyze and visualize data using tools like PowerBI, Tableau, Python, and MatLab.
