When a user downloads a public spatial dataset, usually what they’ll get is a file with information spanning a large region. This means they’re downloading more data than they’re looking for, and they have to put in the extra work to cut out the select data they need.

By using a data distribution map for retrieving data, a user can download datasets for their selected area of interest. This can save users the tedious tasks of cleaning, transforming, and converting their data which will allow them to jump directly into the analysis phase.

How It Works

Draw a polygon within the gridded area below to select an area of interest. Set the parameters to customize your output raster file, and then request the data.

Your data request will be processed and a pop-up will appear with your download link.
