Cameo Event Codes

The gdelt database uses Cameo (=Conflict and Mediation Event Observations) Event codes to classify events in news articles. Below the list of event codes in use. There are 310 different event codes, grouped with 20 root event codes, two digits 01 – 20. The event codes may have a leading “0” and are therefore saved in the database as datatype string. The post “Country Dashboard” is based on the root event codes.

Original information is from the CAMEOConflict and Mediation Event ObservationsEvent and Actor Codebook
