Is there any plan to release S2 products taken before October 2016 as single tiles? This would be very helpful, as using other single tile download systems is a bit tricky for the less computer savvy of us.
Have you tried to use, for example, https://github.com/kraftek/awsdownload ?
If you download the binary package from https://github.com/kraftek/awsdownload/releases , you don’t have to build from sources and using a tool from a command line is not so tricky. Just make sure you have Java 1.8 installed and JAVA_HOME properly pointing to it.
Thanks kraftek. I have tried to use these tools, but can’t get them working. For instance, if I download this binary package and extract it I get a ‘lib’ folder, a Windows Batch File, an Executable Jar File and an SH file. If I open the Jar file something happens, but no new windows open or anything. Is the tool installed? Do I have to open a command line from the folder containing the Jar file? You would scarcely credit the level of my ignorance about these things.
I have Java 1.8, but were do I find out if JAVA_HOME is properly pointing to it? You see - I have no idea? Developers of these tools all assume an underlying level of understanding which I (and I assume others) just don’t have. What is needed are idiot-proof instructions from start to finish of installation and use . Or the old products could just be released as single tiles as I said. But thanks again - I’ll keep trying.
Google is pretty much idiot-proof
Thank-you - yes that was easy. Unfortunately (for me) there doesn’t appear to be any similar simple and comprehensive instructions for the installing and using the tool itself.
You can find a pre-release here (meaning it may have problems) of a GUI for the downloader I have mentioned in my previous post.
For examples on how to use the tool from command line, please see the home page of the tool.
