Downloading data from EMPIAR

You can download full datasets, imagesets or individual images from EMPIAR.

Links to download the data are provided on each page  

There are two main options for downloading EMPIAR data:

  1. Smaller files can be downloaded as ZIP files directly from the EMPIAR website.
  2. For large datasets we recommend using Aspera connect. This is a small plugin that allows you to resume downloads if they are interupted and checks that the datasets are complete once the download is finished.

Aspera can be blocked by firewalls at some institutes. Other options for downloading data from EMPIAR include Globus and our FTP site. Have a look at our FAQ page for more information.
