BDA - video
The Bulk Download Application (BDA) is an easy-to-use tool for downloading large quantities of satellite imagery and geospatial data. The How to do a Bulk Download video provides step-by-step directions for installing the BDA, adding scenes to a bulk order through EarthExplorer, and using the BDA to retrieve them with little to no user interaction. The application will automatically iterate through the scene list and download each until all have been processed. It allows the user to re-arrange, pause, skip, and resume downloads at will.
Please note that the video uses only 3 results for demonstration purposes. The BDA is recommended for downloading quantities of 25 results or more. This is an approximation since file size will vary by data set and the rate of data transfer will vary by customer bandwidth.
Customers working with large amounts of data may want to Update User Interface Options to streamline the order process. After logging in, go to the top toolbar and click on your username. Select Settings from the drop down menu. Go to the Settings Menu on the left portion of screen and select Interface Options. Change Results Per Page to 250 and Result Set Size to 10,000. Click Update to save the new settings. Click Home on the top toolbar to return to EarthExplorer.
