Single site data files

The Bureau has set a constraint that a data file should only contain data for a single site and that the data for that site can be split across two transfer file types. If required, data of each file type can be provided independently of the other.

The two file types and their contents are described below.

Continuous time series data

Continuous time series data file is used to transfer data that is continuously monitored. It is typically of high temporal density and is usually recorded electronically.

All other site data

This file type can contain all site data other than time series. It can contain discreet water quality sample data.

We ask organisations not to deliver all data relating to multiple monitoring stations in a single file. Should the Bureau receive such files, organisations will be asked to provide data files for each site.
