Anyone good at data mining?

Weird... my actual post is gone, but the thread remains....

 

I actually posted this same link.

 

What I'm looking for is a 'bulk download' solution. One that I can use to download all of Nova Scotia, rather than tiny bit by tiny bit. There is supposed to be one available to download County by county, but there is a bug in it, and there are quite a few counties it won't download.

So what I've been trying to do is interpret their JavaScript to see what calls I need to make to download a tile. I've made some progress, and I've been able to get the server to spit me back a like of tiles in a given county, but as of yet I've not been able to get any actual tiles to be retrieved.

Have you tried a data mining software.

 

I've used webminer in the past.

Just got an e-mail back from the guy in the government. The site (should) be fixed now...
