Datasets

The datasets provided here contain data that is already publicly available on the Burning Man site or other official Burning Man sources. Additional datasets will be added over time, based upon the availability of data and originating sources. Due to the nature of a volunteer supported organization and operational priorities, we cannot guarantee all datasets will be available or updated with regularity. Your mileage may vary. Participant provided data is made available only when the original contributor has explicitly or implicitly opted to have their information published publicly or contributed specifically for community innovation. For any questions regarding your privacy, review the Burning Man Privacy Policy found at the bottom of every page on this website. Please review our Developer Guidelines to familiarize yourself with the appropriate use of published data. Please note, datasets will not be updated to include the current year's geo-locational data until the event opens. In the interim, we suggest using historical data.
