GDC Archive AccessAccess to the GDC archive data is provided by HTTPS and currently anonymous FTP. As the FTP protocol has many security weaknesses we encourage you to use the HTTPS protocol for downloading files. Support for FTP will be turned off in the not so long term.
There are many tools available that support these protocols, e.g.
- lftp (Linux, MacOS): A great tool that supports
many protocols (not FTP only!), with wildcard support also for HTTPS.
Download multiple files with wildcards:
lftp -e 'mget -c https://igs.bkg.bund.de/root_ftp/EUREF/obs/2020/004/ACOR00ESP_R_20200040000_01D_?N.rnx.gz; exit'
- wget (Windows Powershell, Linux, MacOS):
Download single file:
Get directory listening for all ACOR* files:
wget -q -nH -nd https://igs.bkg.bund.de/root_ftp/EUREF/obs/2020/004/ -O - | grep ACOR | cut -f8 -d\"
- curl (Windows Powershell, Linux, MacOS): Download single file:
curl -O https://igs.bkg.bund.de/root_ftp/EUREF/obs/2020/004/ACOR00ESP_R_20200040000_01D_EN.rnx.gz
