Downloading datasets and images

There are four components of a dataset that are downloadable from the platform:

  1. Original imagery

  2. Orthomosaic

  3. Digital surface model (DSM)

  4. Digital terrain model (DTM)

The original imagery will download as a package of jpg files, while the orthomosaic, DSM, and DTM are geotiffs. This means that they are georeferenced and can be further analysed in a GIS or image processing system.

With the right subscription level, you are able to download both your own datasets, as well as those available on the FAIR Geo global map.

Downloading a dataset

Navigate to the dataset you want to download images/data from and you will see a download icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

Select the available components you need.

Then click 'Request download.' The download link will be emailed to you within 48 hours.

Under our free Essentials subscription you are able to download the original images of any dataset so select 'Original images' then click 'Request download.' The download link will be emailed to you and will arrive within 48 hours.
Under our paid subscriptions you are able to download the orthomosaic and DEMs (GeoTIFF file). If you aren't currently subscribed to one of these offerings navigate here to sign up. Once subscribed, navigate back to the download page and select the available components you need then click 'Request download.' The download link will be emailed to you within 48 hours.

Downloading individual images

If you are looking to download individual images, navigate to the dataset you want to download from. On the dataset card on the left-hand side of the page you will see the title 'Original images' situated under 'Technical details'.

Click on the image you are interested in downloading, click "Download" or right click, select 'Save as', then choose the directory of your choice to save it in.

Please note that the individual images here are resampled, so not at their full resolution. If you wish to download the full resolution raw images, please download the whole dataset according to the instruction above.

If you are accessing a dataset from the global map, please remember to give credit to those who captured the data and to GeoNadir for helping make it available. You can do this in the acknowledgements section of a journal article or in any other place where you wish to present the data and your findings.

The dataset used in this example was uploaded by David Rogers and can be accessed here.
