This database is powered by Neo4j, a graph database that structures data in nodes (the icons you see in the visualization) and relationships (the links between nodes). To make this data easily accessible to everyone, regardless of the technical resources at their disposal, we have converted our original database into several CSV files, one per type of node and one for all the relationships for each project. You may download an archive in zip or torrent format. Please bear in mind that the archive is large, so if you know how to use BitTorrent, we encourage you to use it:

- Offshore Leaks [zip] - [torrent]
- Panama Papers [zip] - [torrent]
- Paradise Papers [zip] - [torrent]
In November, 2017, ICIJ incorporated to the database data from the Paradise Papers Appleby and some politicians featured in the investigation. ICIJ will be adding the full Paradise Papers structured data in the coming weeks. We recommend you read this section about the latest updates to the data.
We have also made a distribution of Neo4j available with the data in it. This will allow you to query the database to fully explore from your computer the connections between people and companies. The package also includes a guide that explains how to use Neo4j.
You can download a Windows version (torrent file) and a Mac version (torrent file). The Appleby Paradise Papers data is currently downloadable, the rest of the Paradise Papers data is not currently included in this downloadable version. This option will be available in the coming weeks when the full structured data is released. The process to launch the packages is pretty straight forward, however we encourage you to follow the instructions in the readme. You’ll be able to explore the ICIJ Offshore Leaks data without having to install Neo4j separately. Watch this video to learn more about this graph database software:
