Bulk data extraction using python?

by leon_c » Mon Dec 06, 2021 6:12 am America/New_York

Hello!

Is there a way to modify the downloading script to automatically extract desired region using python?
I've figured the "order" of the URLs when downloading data for the whole globe, but is there a way to download pre-extracted data, as opposed to extracting the region after downloading the whole dataset?

I'm running Ubuntu on this machine.

Thanks!

If you use the L1/2 browser, you can select a region of interest for extraction when you place an order for the data.
You need to select "Do extract my order for me" on the order page. Once you submit (and confirm) the request, extracts will be created and staged for you to retrieve.

Regards,
Sean

Thank you very much!
I'll compare this method with post-download extraction, see what works best for me.

Thank you once again!
