However, it is also possible to download the geoparquet files directly:

Direct download

You can download the Parquet files directly from either Azure Blob Storage or Amazon S3 at the locations given above. Note: the total size of all the files is over 200 GB.

After installing the AWS CLI, you can download the files from S3 using the below command. Set <DESTINATION> to a local directory path to download the files, or to an s3:// path you control to copy them into your S3 bucket.

aws s3 cp --region us-west-2 --no-sign-request --recursive s3://overturemaps-us-west-2/release/2024-05-16-beta.0/ <DESTINATION>

You can download the files from Azure Blob Storage using Azure Storage Explorer or the AzCopy command. An example azcopy command is given below.

azcopy copy "https://overturemapswestus2.dfs.core.windows.net/release/2024-05-16-beta.0/" "<<local directory path>>"  --recursive
