I'm trying to download the USGS NLCD 2011 Tree Canopy data from the National Land Cover Database (http://www.mrlc.gov/nlcd11_data.php), but it's really slow. Does anyone know of an alternative site to get this data, or if it is just me that is finding it slow?
It's a 3GB file and will take 4 days at the current speed. I've been checking the website frequently for the last three days and it seems to be consistently slow. Problem is, I want the 10GB file too. I emailed them about it and they said to reset my browser, but then never replied to subsequent emails after that. I download GIS data all the time from different sources, so I don't think the issue is on my end.
