SILO climate database

Data usability rating :
Contains open format machine-readable open data.

SILO is a Queensland Government database containing continuous daily climate data for Australia from 1889 to present, in a number of ready-to-use formats, suitable for modelling and research applications. The SILO database contains two major classes of data: point (station) time series and spatial grids, both based on observed data from the Bureau of Meteorology ADAM (Australian Data Archive for Meteorology) database. For point data, interpolated or derived values are used where observations are missing. Gridded data are spatially interpolated from observations.
