Downloading DIPY datasets

In this tutorial, you will learn how to download the DIPY datasets using the terminal.

First, let’s create a folder:

mkdir data_folder

You can list all available datasets in DIPY using the command:

dipy_fetch list

In order to fetch a specific dataset, you will need to specify its name to the dipy_fetch command, and an optional destination directory using the --out_dir argument:

dipy_fetch {specific_dataset} --out_dir {specific_data_out_folder}

For example, to download the sherbrooke_3shell dataset, you would run:

dipy_fetch sherbrooke_3shell --out_dir data_folder
