- If the default time interval for the download does not fit your needs you can change it through the left (start of interval) and right (end of interval) text field. Please take care of how many data you need for the analysis when selecting download interval, see "Data download" for more information. The end date is the actual date by default.
- Click "Download to spreadsheet" on the right to download data file. It is recommended to change the name of the downloaded file since the default file name is always the same (data.csv).
Hint: if you save the page where you have just downloaded data from to the "Favourites" or "Bookmarks" you do not have to do all the searching process again but you can navigate to the page of the data download directly by recalling it from the "Favourites" or "Bookmarks".
