Important Download Tips

Download File Manager

You may wish to consider using a file download manager to help ensure complete downloading of files should the download connection be interrupted. One such tool is the Free Download Manager, which is not endorsed nor supported by the NDGIS but is listed as an example.

Download Multiple Files

To download multiple files at a time you may wish to consider using a utility such as wget. After installing wget, an example for downloading all files from an HTTP directory is:
C:\data>"c:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\wget.exe" -rv http://gisdata.nd.gov/Cities/BismarckMandan/Elevation/2009/Contours/SHP/

An example of downloading only the .xml files is:
C:\data>"c:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\wget.exe" -rv -A.xml http://gisdata.nd.gov/Cities/BismarckMandan/Elevation/2009/Contours/SHP/
