Find & export data

In this guide, we introduce how to find and export data from a site on the Koordinates platform. If you wish to export multiple data layers, visit Find and Export Multiple Data Layers

This guide is intended for first-time users. For a more detailed introduction, read the rest of our Getting Started guides—or dive further into our support documentation.


Enter your search term

The first thing you need to do is enter a term in the search bar at the top of the screen and click the magnifying glass. 


Filter your results

Use the search filters to browse your results. These include Region and Publisher.


Select your data

Click the thumbnail image or title for your chosen data layer. 

If you wish to export multiple data layers, click 'Add to Collection.'


Click 'Crop' to limit the extent of your data

Once you have explored your dataset, you may decide you only want to download a small part of it. 

To do so, click on the 'Crop' button. This will enable you to select a smaller section of your chosen dataset.


Click 'Export'


Choose your format and projection

A pop-up screen will present you with a range of download options, including GIS, CAD, Google Earth KML, PDF and XML data formats. You'll also be able to see the licensing terms for your chosen dataset.


Click Export

If you haven't registered for Koordinates, you'll be asked to sign up for a Koordinates ID. Learn more about Koordinates ID here. 

Once your export is ready, you'll receive an email with a link to a ZIP file.
