Want a copy of the Geograph Archive? (by snail mail)

For the past few months I have been sending out copies of the Geograph Archive (all of it!) on USB hard disks.

If you are interested then let me know, plan to make an order for blank hard disks early next week.

I plan to offer these at £60 a piece – postage to the UK included. Depending on postage worldwide, might be slightly more, quote on request. Which is pretty close to cost.

The drives will be 640G, and include about 490Gb of jpgs. (about 2222222 files) The database and code is included, but that can also be downloaded from online. Probably these.

… With an added twist, will send it completely free (I’ll finance it myself) if you promise to make an application to view the images off the disk (ie works entirely offline). This would have be Open Source so it could be included on future disks, and downloadable for holders of disks already). More details of this on request.

  1. Hi

    We are in the process of creating a user generated travel guide website and are planning on making use of the Geonames data for our project.

    I read with great interest on your website about the 2,222,222 jpg files that you have.

    How do we go about getting a hold of this data – it sounds very interesting and we are keen to use it/see it.

    Is there an ftp site where we could download it from i.e. is it online somewhere.

    No. There is no FTP site. Frankly the bandwidth requirements would make it too expensive to maintain. As for seeing the data, goto http://www.geograph.org.uk

    The offer to post a disk is still open. But there are a lot more images now. So will need a bigger (and slightly more expensive!) disk.
