Event data contains information for descriptive, predictive and inferential statistical analysis of political and social actions. The varied formats and large size of event datasets present considerable difficulties for time-efficient analysis, cross-dataset replication and comparison, and discoverability. We address these difficulties with an event data platform, TwoRavens for Event Data, that provides an interface to construct generalized, declarative and reusable descriptions of data subsets and aggregations. The platform may be used to quickly construct and visualize datasets of research interest. Processed data may be curated and saved, and is easily discoverable. ©2018 IEEE.
