Downloading Data in Bulk

The NASA Exoplanet Archive serves a variety of spectra, time series and other exoplanet related data, and has generated a set of wget scripts to enable users to download these data in bulk.

To use these scripts, you must have wget installed and included in your environment path before executing the scripts. For more information about installing and using wget, please read the wget help page.

Kepler Pipeline Scripts

These reports are generated by the Kepler Team during the evaluation of TCEs and KOIs. The Data Validation (DV) reports and the Planet Detection Metrics are produced by the Kepler Pipeline. DV reports are multi-page reports produced for each KIC source with one or more TCEs. DV Summaries are 1-page summaries produced for each TCE in each data release. The TCERT reports are used by the Threshold Crossing Event Review Team to vet the pipeline produced TCEs.

DV Summaries The Exoplanet Archive serves 20367 Data Validation (DV) Summary Reports for the Q1-Q17 DR24 data release. These are PDF digests containing the most valuable diagnostics for evaluating TCEs and dispositioning them into planet candidates and false positives. wget_DV_SUM.bat 2016-04-14
DV Reports The Exoplanet Archive serves 12669 detailed DV Reports for the Q1-Q17 DR24 data release. These provide the background for the information in the DV Summary Reports and additional analyses. wget_DV_REP.bat 2016-04-14
KOI DV Summaries The Exoplanet Archive serves 8378 Data Validation Summary Reports of TCEs which Kepler Host star have associated Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI). The number of summary reports may not match the total KOI count because not all KOIs have corresponding TCEs. wget_KOI_DV_SUM.bat 2016-04-14
KOI DV Reports The Exoplanet Archive serves 7330 detailed DV Reports of TCEs which Kepler Host star have associated Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI). Reports for host stars of multiple systems will contain data for all KOIs in that system. wget_KOI_DV_REP.bat 2016-04-14
TCERT Reports The Exoplanet Archive makes available the materials used by the Threshold Crossing Event Review Team (TCERT) to vet the TCEs for the Q1-Q17 DR24 data release. These PDF files contain the diagnostic plots and data for all TCEs (grouped by star, resulting in 12669 files) and include diagnostics produced by DV as well as additional ones calculated outside of the Kepler pipeline. wget_TCERT_REP.bat 2016-04-14
Planet Detection Metrics The Exoplanet Archive serves 397256 Planet Detection Metrics files (Window Function and One-sigma Depth Function) for the Q1-Q17 DR24 data release. These quantify the ability of the Transit Planet Search module to detect a transiting planet signature on a star-by-star basis. (600 GB) wget_PDM.bat 2016-04-14
Planet Detection Metrics for KOIs The Exoplanet Archive serves 15114 Planet Detection Metrics files (Window Function and One-sigma Depth Function) for the Q1-Q17 DR24 data release for stars associated to Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI). wget_KOI_PDM.bat 2016-04-14

Kepler Time Series Scripts

Light curves are generated by the Kepler pipeline, and are archived at MAST. Here we provide wget scripts to retrieve all of the light curves from the NASA Exoplanet Archive. While the wget scripts are relatively small (script file size given in description), the volume of data retrieved is significant. Most Kepler Quarterly scripts will retrieve 175 GB and the full set of Kepler light curves will approach 3 TB.
