CEDE™ (Catastrophe Exposure Database Exchange) is AIR's open source exposure data format. 

AIR created CEDE to facilitate accurate and transparent data exchange throughout the insurance value chain and to encourage model development from academic institutions and smaller organizations. 

For a description of the CEDE database schema, see CEDE 8.0 Database Reference.
