FreeSurfer Tutorial Datasets
The following commands will install the complete tutorial dataset (~8GB) on your machine. Afterwards, you should have a folder called tutorial_data in your working directory.
curl https://surfer.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/pub/data/tutorial_data.tar.gz -o tutorial_data.tar.gz tar -xzvf tutorial_data.tar.gz rm tutorial_data.tar.gz
In order to run the tutorials, users must define an environment variable called TUTORIAL_DATA, which must be set to the tutorial_data root directory containing the extracted data (i.e. the directories 'buckner_data', 'long-tutorial', 'fsfast-functional', etc.). The tutorials make frequent use of the TUTORIAL_DATA environment variable and it need to be set properly for any of the tutorials to work. For example:
export TUTORIAL_DATA=/path/to/your/tutorial/dir ls $TUTORIAL_DATA buckner_data fsfast-functional diffusion_recons fsfast-tutorial.subjects diffusion_tutorial long-tutorial
If you see something similar to the above output, you are now ready to start the Freesurfer tutorials.
