Abstract: Wannier tight-binding Hamiltonians (WTBH) provide a computationally efficient way to predict electronic properties of materials. In this work, we develop a computational workflow for high-throughput Wannierization of density functional theory (DFT) based electronic band structure calculations. We apply this workflow to 1771 materials (1406 3D and 365 2D), and we create a database with the resulting WTBHs. We evaluate the accuracy of the WTBHs by comparing the Wannier band structures to directly calculated spin-orbit coupling DFT band structures. Our testing includes k-points outside the grid used in the Wannierization, providing an out-of-sample test of accuracy. We illustrate the use of WTBHs with a few example applications. We also develop a web-app that can be used to predict electronic properties on-the-fly using WTBH from our database. The tools to generate the Hamiltonian and the database of the WTB parameters are made publicly available through the websites https://github.com/usnistgov/jarvis and https://jarvis.nist.gov/jarviswtb.
