Public CSV URL
The Public CSV URL allows users to programmatically pull the underlying data of a chart into other tools, such as R, Python and Google Sheets. Because the Public CSV URL allows data to be extracted out of Periscope to be used by any application that takes a CSV URL, the URL doesn't require authentication to access the underlying chart information.

Using this URL, machine learning models and Google spreadsheets can pull directly from Periscope, and all the data will work in harmony!
Note: The Public CSV URL does not support CORS, so it cannot be used in AJAX calls in web browsers.
