NEII Programme

A unique feature of the NEII data viewer is that it enables many different monitoring sites and data services to be displayed at the same time on the one map.  As data and services remain with the respective custodians, the user has confidence that they are using the most current data and services.

Visit the NEII data viewer. Click on 'Add data' to expand the Data Catalogue. For both the NEII Data Services – Conformant and Environmental Monitoring Sites you will need to select a domain (Air, Biota, Land, Oceans, and Water).

NEII Data Services – Conformant

Choose a domain Air, Biota, Land, Ocean and Water by clicking on the folder to the left of the text, for example for Air this displays the Australian Gridded Solar Climatology. Click on the folder to the left of this text and a list of services are displayed.

Choose the service you would like to add to the map by clicking on the + symbol to the right of the required service.

National Environmental Monitoring Sites Register

The same process can be used to display Environmental Monitoring Sites Register networks. Clicking on the network name for example ACORN-SAT provides a description of the network along with a Network URL, GeoJSON URL and a link to download the data directly. Clicking on + add the network to your map.

Click on a dot on the map of Australia and this provides information unique to that site.
