The ATLAS open data dataset is comprised of real data recorded with the ATLAS detector in 2012 and matching simulated data. The set of real data has an integrated luminosity approximately 1fb^-1 centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. Events come from period D of the 2012 data taking of the ATLAS experiment.
Both real and simulated data is subjected to a loose event preselection to reduce processing time by reducing the overall number of events that have to be analysed. The preselection consists of a set of object selection criteria and a subsequent event selection acting on these preselected objects.
You can access these data through the ATLAS Virtual Machines and Software. More documentation is available at:
