Hey! The difference is that the .bz2 is a dump of measurement results, but /api/v2/measurements/traceroute/ gives you measurement metadata. The json returned from the API call you provided includes 'result' fields, each of which refers to the measurement IDs with the actual results. If you want, you can run through those pointers and pull down the measurement results manually to get at the result data we're putting into the .bz2 archives. Note also that the output of that API call is paginated; use option "page_size=500" (the maximum) to reduce the number of pages you have to loop over. Hope that helps!
