Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have been using the data explorer to examine the stackoverflow data and I don't know what some of the votetypeids mean.

I am specifically interested in the following

  1. Votetypeid 2: UpMod; is this equivalent to an upvote?
  2. Votetypeid 3: DownMod; is this equivalent to a downvote?
  3. Votetypeid 15: ModeratorReview; does this refer to a request for moderation or that the post has been reviewed by a moderator?
  4. Votetypeid 16: ApproveEditSuggestion; does this refer to an edit has been approved or does it mean an edit is requested.

Votetypeid 2: UpMod; is this equivalent to an upvote?

Yes.

Votetypeid 3: DownMod; is this equivalent to a downvote?

Yes.

Votetypeid 15: ModeratorReview; does this refer to a request for moderation or that the post has been reviewed by a moderator?

This refers to a moderator viewing the post after it's been flagged for moderator attention.

Votetypeid 16: ApproveEditSuggestion; does this refer to an edit has been approved or does it mean an edit is requested.

This refers to someone voting to approve a suggested edit. It might take more than one vote to approve an edit. (Most sites require 2 or 3... and moderator votes are binding, so only one of those is necessary.)
