To review and execute the license agreement, go to Once your agreement is approved, which typically takes around 48 hours, you will be emailed a set of AWS access credentials. In the meantime, you can explore the data overview and the sample notebooks to get familiar with the dataset, and download the CLI to get setup in advance.

If you need continued access to the dataset after your credentials expire, you can easily renew your license by requesting it again at If previously approved, your access will be immediately re-activated.
