Copy Data source and files from to Our Accounts S3 bucket

I would like to understand how to get data sets from to my S3 bucket.

I could access the Public S3 Bucket for Openaq(air quality) data sets at    ( )

That folder has around 30 files,  and I want to copy all these files from Public S3 bucket of to My local(My aws account) S3 bucket.

Please share if you could find a way to easily copy these to another(your own) S3 bucket.

Appreciate your help!

Hi Arjun,

You could probably copy the data using the AWS CLI presuming the OpenAQ bucket has public read, which I think it does. Something like:

aws s3 sync s3:/path-to-openaq-files/ s3:/path-to-my-bucket/

Yes it has the S3 bucket public

aws s3 sync s3://openaq-fetches/realtime/2019-09-20/ s3://path-to-my-bucket/
