I'm interested in downloading all of the Curiosity rover photos. Is there some sort of automated way to do this?

• mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/raw - have you tried wgetting? Feb 27, 2014 at 7:59
• @DeerHunter: This will probably produce tons of unrelated junk, especially that the actual images reside on a different path than the document root (but same host) you linked, and 4 clicks deep from it, so plain exclusion of parent directory won't suffice. I'm pretty good with wget but I'd have a problem thinking up a syntax that will get all raw images from the link provided and not grab videos, 3D images and such in the process.

MSL IMAGE RETRIEVAL TOOLS

I hope the original Questioneer is not still looking for the imagedata. But for people who are looking at the moment, I could give you another website to retrieve Nasa Mars Rover and more Raw Images:

https://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov

It is really difficult to find this tool with the help of google, but it is worthy.

The only small Issue, the website creates a shell script with wget commands for every image selected. For the Data I downloaded once it took me 6 days in total because 40 GB of Images with a max size of 2 MB and downloading them step-by-step with single wgets takes some time.

EDIT: The Website is correct but the actual tool is the image atlas which could be found on the left site.

• It's great when a new user revives an old question by adding a new and (presumably) helpful solution!
