Volume Bundles at the PDS Rings Node
To facilitate downloading entire data volumes, the PDS Rings
Node provides "bundled" volumes. The bundled volumes are
in .tar.gz format meaning that they are Unix tar files
further compressed using gnuzip.
There are a large number of compression programs
that will handle this scheme. Unix, Linux, and Mac OS-X
operating systems generally come with suitable software.
Windows users who need a tool to access these files might
consider the open software utility
which, during testing here, opened the largest of our
bundles with no difficulties.
