There are three different ways to download data from SCAN. Public access allows for csv download of specific taxa and you can further filter by geography and data range. The most typical method for downloading data on certain taxa is through the Search Collections. The Spatial Module allows for five different download formats for GIS applications. If you admin access to a collection you can download the entire recordset and associated metadata.
Anyone with admin rights to their collection can download their entire dataset to a csv. All collections are encouraged to keep a separate copy of their data.
Below are screenshots showing the steps one takes to download collection data and image information (VPI is the example). There is also a video that illustrate the same steps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsNF-GSIHBA
