Access to geospatial data files

GeoGratis uses the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to distribute geospatial data via its website. Below an exhaustive list of GeoGratis products that allows to access the FTP site directly. In the GeoGratis FAQ section, the question Is it possible to access the GeoGratis directory using an FTP client (for example Filezilla, BulletProof FTP, etc.)? will help you for the massive download.

Some digital files are large, often tens of megabytes in size. Plan to download during off-peak hours. It should be noted that the geospatial data have a wide variety of sources, scales, resolutions, projections, spectral resolutions and formats.

Documentation is available for most products and is located with the product. In some cases it may be in a separate "doc" subfolder.
