Foodtruck.ai is diligent about cataloging data sources. We want to steer you towards all the data.
Form ABS-EE, EX-102
The ABS-EE Form complies with Reg AB II Asset Level Requirements and includes all the fields specified in the Schedule AL. The filing is an XML file. EDGAR ABS XML Technical Specification (Version 1.9).
Finsight.com is the easiest place to grab a csv tape for the most recent filing and they also let you subscribe for email alerts when new filings hit the market.
Access EDGAR data
A quick and easy way to lookup a single filing of any type is to use a site like BamSEC. For more data you can leverage EDGAR's apis and file drops (this is what we do). Then there are fancy api services like SEC-API.
There are sooo many cool sites built on top of EDGAR data. Our favorite to explore data available in EDGAR is Rank and Filed. Thank you to Maris and the open source tech that made that site possible. Whale Wisdom is another. We mentioned Finsight above. Let us know which other ones we are missing; maybe we can do an exhaustive list!
What can I do with the charts on this site?
You can peek at them to answer a quick question you have or for quick confirmation. You can download them and re-use them in any way you want (email, blog, newsletter, powerpoint presentation, document, etc). You can use them to check against your own charts. Lastly maybe you can get ideas for other types of data visualizations and\or data sources that you want to learn or use in the future.
Can I search for different charts?
We don't have a search bar yet, for now Google is our search bar. We are adding more charts every day and once we have added 5000 charts we will put up a simple search bar. Sadly we probably do not have the chart you are looking for at this exact moment but tell us about it and we will make sure it happens.
What format are your charts when I download them?
Right now most of them are available as SVG format which is very flexible if you want to resize. Over time we will add the most common image formats (png, jpeg, gif, etc).
What if I don't like the colors of a chart?
We are working on that, but in the meantime open to suggestions for additional color pallettes!
Why does Foodtruck.ai exist?
A few reasons. We enjoy connecting consumers of data to producers of data. We believe data should be more accessible in our target industries (Capital Markets, ESG, Venture and CRE) and that folks should compete on what they do with data, not access to data. Foodtruck.ai is a vehicle to explore and engage around some out of the box ideas and techniques a few of which might work while many others won't. Lastly, everything on the internet is a funnel and this site may unlock opportunities to build custom data pipelines for firms with very specific ambitions.
How can I contribute?
Foodtruck.ai is calling for partners and collaborators of all kinds (creators, consumers, etc). We are working on a new page that outlines all the ways; stay tuned!
