Data drill

The Data Drill accesses grids of data interpolated from point observations by the Bureau of Meteorology. The data in the Data Drill are all synthetic; there are no original meteorological station data left in the calculated grid fields.

To access the Data Drill, you must define a point in Australia to an accuracy of 0.05 degrees, a start and finish year, the required format for your meteorological variables, and an email address for the return of the results.
