This page describes how to download your own data from InfoEx for use in programs like Excel.


To allow operations to make better use of the data they have submitted to InfoEx, exporting is available. The report tables are downloaded as individual CSV (commas delimited) files that can be read by programs like Excel or Numbers. These files can be used for local archiving, research projects and case studies or end of season reports. Data can be downloaded via the reports function or 'Download Operation Data' in the cogwheel menu

NOTE It is only possible to download reports that only include data of your own operation. InfoEx data files that include multiple operations require permission from each of the included subscribers and must be requested from the Canadian Avalanche Association

See Downloading your location catalog as a KML file for information on how to download you own location catalog.

If this happens, you can still download your information, but you will need to explicitly do it table by table. In other words, you will need to create individual reports with only weather observation, field summaries, avalanche observations, ... and download them separately. See Specifying the tables to be included in an InfoEx report for more information on how to do this.
