File size limit -- The current file size limit for uploads and downloads in ScienceBase is 10 GB. Files larger than 1 GB should be uploaded using the Large File Uploader tool available in the “Item Actions” section at the bottom of a ScienceBase page.
Files used to generate web services -- ScienceBase can generate web services from certain geospatial file types if they are uploaded through the edit form (individual file size limit of 1-2GB). Files uploaded through the Large File Uploader tool will not generate services.
- GeoTIFFs -- ScienceBase can process geotiffs with overviews (internal or external) up to 1GB. A geotiff without an overview must be less than 250MB. For files that exceed this size, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate alternate data submission options.
- Shapefiles -- ScienceBase can process shapefiles up to 500MB. If you have larger shapefiles, please contact email@example.com to coordinate alternate data submission options.
- ESRI Service Definition (.sd) files -- Single file uploads through the edit form should not exceed 1-2GB. ScienceBase can process uploaded .sd files if the unzipped content does not exceed 4GB.
