The Data page in Metroview is your home for viewing and kicking off requested data downloads. Underneath the Downloads header, there is a tabular list containing the details of:
- FILENAME - Customizable when submitting a download
- USER - The Metroview user in the organization who submitted the download request
- DESCRIPTION - Contains information about the requested Area, Extent, Time Frame/Period, Activity Type, and Trip Purpose
- TYPE - Currently all downloads are ZIP's containing spatial data and a CSV
- SIZE - File size for the download. Larger downloads, such as a full Area of Interest take longer to process
- CREATED - Date the download submission was created in YYYY-MM-DD format. This can be sorted by recency.
The last field will show text first reading "Queued..." when a download request has been submitted. The "Queued..." label means that the export request has been received but is not yet processing yet. While in this status, you can cancel a queued request by clicking the X icon to the right. After queuing, the label will change to "Processing...". It may take some time to queue and process, depending on the size/area of the download, the number of activities, and how many other exports are in the queue.
The TYPE and SIZE fields will update when your download is ready and the last field will change to display an orange "Download" button.
Maximum Number of Exports
Every organization in Metroview has a maximum of large exports that can be pending at one time. When that maximum number is reached, the "Download entire area" button will not be clickable from the Streets view.
Also when using "Select download area", depending on the size of the selection box you may see a message indicating that you have reached the maximum number of pending large exports. A large export is defined as an area larger than 9 square miles or 23 square kilometers. You can select a smaller area to get a download started sooner.
