I am trying to use data from GitHub at this location: https://github.com/factbook/factbook.csv/blob/master/data/c2147.csv

Is there a way to convert this to csv or utilize in some other more interesting way?

In the end, I would like to publish the resulting layer to ArcGIS Online. I have the country boundary file to join already.

  • Although you later want to use this CSV in ArcGIS Online, your question here seems to be about how to retrieve it from Github which has no GIS component. I think it would have been better researched/asked at the Web Applications Stack Exchange which has a tag for github.

You can get the raw data from raw.githubusercontent.
