I want to introduce the data I have taken from a dynamic dataset (GitHub repos) at 12pm today. I want to say the equivalent of "This is the data as of 12pm Sept 4" but am wondering if there is a specific term for that type of snapshot.

    $\begingroup$ This is a perfectly reasonable question, even if the answer is 'no'. I'm voting to leave open. $\endgroup$ Sep 5, 2018 at 14:21

This is a cross-section of your data. Such measurements are termed cross-sectional. A stream of such measurements is a cross-sectional time series. A cross-sectional time series, and a repeated cohorts time series (measuring change at repeated intervals of measurement) are both termed panel time series.
