How to access data using an FTP client

To access data using an FTP client (e.g. FileZilla, Cyberduck, FireFTP, etc.), you first need to determine the FTP address (ftp://xxxx) associated with the data set of interest. This address is located in your data set registration confirmation email. 

If the FTP address begins with ftp://sidads.colorado.edu, use the following information:
Host Name: sidads.colorado.edu
User Name: anonymous
Password: <your e-mail address>
Directory: /pub/DATASETS/XXXX
(Copy the FTP address after the host name. 'XXXX’ may include the data set product directory and the specific data set directory.)
