I found no equations there, nor any links to the original data sources.

Did not find any information on the source of the data.

Everything looked fairly obvious, except that there did not seem
to be any reference to the source of the datasets.

Perhaps I was not clear enough in my previous posts.

I am looking for the SOURCE of the data, that is, where did
YOU get the data from, so that I may obtain my own datasets.

In particular I am interested in the EM dataset.
