KnotInfo Database Download

The KnotInfo database has two parts, the collection of knot invariants and the collection of diagrams. Both can be downloaded in full. However, BE WARNED both databases are very large.

KnotInfo invariants are kept in an Excel Spreadsheet. For each invariant, there are two columns: one has the value of the invariant, the other has possible links to references. It should not be hard to isolate out the data of interest. The file is roughly 11MB : Database of knot invariants.

The diagrams in KnotInfo are png and svg files. The full collection can be downloaded as two separate compressed files, each roughly 40MB. Unpacked they contain about 9,000 files: for each knot there is a diagram of the knot, its mirror image, and a thumbnail sketch. The two downloads are: Knot Diagrams - Knotscape and Knot Diagrams - Snappy.
