Sample data

Use sample data to familiarize yourself with time series data and InfluxDB. InfluxData provides many sample time series datasets to use with InfluxDB Cloud.

InfluxDB Cloud demo data

Use InfluxDB Cloud demo data buckets for quick, free access to different types of sample data.

Demo data is not available for use with third-party integrations such as Grafana.

Sample data sets

The following sample data sets are used as examples in InfluxDB query guides.

Air sensor sample data

Air sensor sample data represents an “Internet of Things” (IoT) use case by simulating temperature, humidity, and carbon monoxide levels for multiple rooms in a building. The dataset also includes a relational SQL dataset with meta information about sensors in each room.

Bird migration sample data

Bird migration data is adapted from the Movebank: Animal Tracking data set on Kaggle and represents animal migratory movements throughout 2019. Use the Flux Geo package to query and analyze the geo-temporal data in this sample data set.
