Data and metadata for figures in the Australian Water Resources Assessment 2010 are now available for download. This is the first time such data have been made available for an Australian water resource assessment.

Zip files of data for each figure are provided for the national and regional chapters of the report.

Data in the zip files is available in comma separated format (CSV) for time series plots. The spatial information is available in ASCII grid format and can be opened using most geo-processing packages. Each data file is associated with a JPG image of the figure in which it appears.

Metadata is provided in PDF files and complies with the ANZLIC metadata profile version 1.1.

The Bureau of Meteorology launched its first Australian water resources assessment in December 2011.
