Welcome to CSIRO's Ag Climate Data Shop

The Ag Climate Data Shop is the place to go to access ag related weather and climate data for Australia.

Climate data underpins a lot of what we do in CSIRO and is often needed by our partners and stakeholders. Knowing which data to use, where to find it, whether you need to buy it or what licence you have to use can be confusing. This shop simplifies access to data.

Historical, real-time and forecast weather and climate data and related analytics

The Ag Climate Data Shop brings CSIRO’s expertise, several data sets and models together in one place to make it easier for partners and customers to access and use these resources – saving you time and money.

Historical, real-time and forecast climate and weather data underpins a lot of the agricultural modelling produced by CSIRO and is often needed by our partners and stakeholders. In CSIRO, we provide the most trusted and credible sources of data.

Using the Software as a Service (SaaS) philosophy, we are providing subscription type services that allow access to data and models via Rest APIs and file downloads.

Senaps

Delivery for many products is through CSIRO's Senaps platform. Senaps data and analytics services provide the underlying capability to deliver products in the Ag Climate Data Shop. The Senaps delivery method also allows you to build and deliver new tools and apps for your customers by value-adding these underlying models and data with your IP. Talk to the Senaps Team to find out more about how Senaps can help you get to market faster.

The Ag Climate Data Shop includes real-time data products from outputs of bespoke models such as degree growing days, pasture growth forecasts and automated localised weather forecasts.

Picture of Point Weather Forecast (formerly ADFD-P)

Point Weather Forecast (formerly ADFD-P)

Point Weather Forecast (formerly ADFD-P) is the Australian Bureau of Meteorology's (BoM) 7-day weather forecast for all locations in Australia. This is a point forecast developed from the gridded forecast, with hourly weather predictions for a range of variables out to 7 days. It is updated twice daily by the Bureau. This product provides REST API access to the Bureau's latest* 7-day forecast for all point locations in Australia.

Your Seasonal Forecast - API access

Your Seasonal Forecast (formerly CSCF-R) forecast takes output from the Bureau’s latest seasonal climate model (ACCESS-S1) and transforms it into a forecast for your specified locations. You provide the latitude and longitude of your locations and we provide an application-ready data feed through a REST API.

Picture of PastureGrowth Grid

PastureGrowth Grid

PastureGrowth refers to the amount of carbon plants capture through photosynthesis and convert to biomass. PastureGrowth provides an excellent indication of ecosystem productivity, pasture production and crop yield. As a biophysical variable, PastureGrowth can be used to compare differences in productivity between locations and through time. PastureGrowth data provide more powerful insights into productivity than the more commonly used Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). This is because NDVI has no inherent biophysical meaning and must be related (calibrated) to some local, physical attribute, such as biomass or cover. Even when calibrated, the NDVI by itself is not always a good indicator of productivity because it cannot capture real variability in productivity when cover is high (such as in the north’s wet season, or in the south’s dark winter months, or during the peak of the cropping season or in irrigated pastures). It is for these reasons that we have developed this new product, PastureGrowth .

Data is accessed through a THREDDS server API as time-stamped GeoTIFFs of the product region(s).
