Having Problem Downloading County Datasheets

Recommended Posts

When I go to the NGS site, I can select the Datasheets, State and County. But I do not get any download file to unzip. What am I doing wrong?

I just tried doing a download and found it is very slow. Try selecting about 10 datasheets to download and see how long it takes and verify that it will pull up the datasheets you wanted.

 

The more you try to download the longer it takes to get the datasheet list.

 

Here is the link I used - http://www.ngs.noaa....n/datasheet.prl

So here is what I do...

-Choose Datasheets

-Choose County

-Select State (i.e. Kentucky)

-Select County (i.e. Ballard)

-Choose Get Marks

 

I wait for a download file to unzip, but all I eventually get are the datasheets. I want to a zipfile that I can convert to a GPX file. What am I doing wrong?

Yes, after you hit, Get Datasheets, you'll get a view of all the datasheets you've highlighted.

Now do this:

-Go to File, Save As. You've get a popup about saving as a Webpage. "would you like to save as a Webpage?"

-Enter, Yes. Now you'll get the popup to save page and to choose location.

-First, at the bottom, you must change the "Save as type: Webpage HTML", and change it to "Text File (*.txt)"

-Now save it to the file location you choose.

-Now you'll have the correct file to convert from Txt to GPX.
