Tip

If you want to download more than 2GB and you don't have a CSIRO logon, you should probably select the Download via WebDAV option under "How do you want to access the data?".  It's easier to download large files, or many files, using a WebDAV client (such as Cyberduck [external site] or BitKinex WinSCP [external site]) than it is using a web browser.

If you're a CSIRO staff member you'll have more download options available to you if you log on.

The simplest solution is to use a WebDAV client (such as Cyberduck [external site] or BitKinex WinSCP [external site]).  It is also possible to download the files using download manager add-ons for your web browser.  Another option is to use a command line tool such as wget.

Lodge a request and select the "Dowload via WebDAV" option.  You will receive an email with the WebDAV server details.  You can use a tool such as wget or cURL to download the files over HTTP.

Example for public users

 

This example assumes some familiarity with using a terminal / command line.

Let's say we want to download the collection FGARA Digital Soil Mapping Output - Organic Carbon.

First, lodge a request by entering your email address, selecting "Download via WebDAV", selecting your preferred data location (e.g. Canberra), and clicking "request files".

When the data are ready you will receive an email with the WebDAV address.  The exact details of the address may vary depending on the options you selected.

Using the details in the email, here is an example wget command:

Code Block
languagebash
linenumberstrue
wget -r -c --user=[email address] --password=[password from email] [WebDAV address from email]

Resulting in a command like this:

Code Block
languagebash
linenumberstrue
wget -r -c --user=fake.address@gmail.com --password=FakePassword http://webdav-bm.data.csiro.au/dap_prd_000008125v001/

 

This example uses the -r option to recursively download all files from the collection, and the -c option which allows you to restart an interrupted download.


 

 

I am restricted from installing software on my computer, how do I download files via WebDAV when I don't have a WebDAV client?
