JSON data list for www.bom.gov.au

posted in: JSON | 0

I needed weather observation data from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for an App I’m currently working on.
Although the BOM provides observation data for all stations in JSON format, they don’t provide a list of JSON pages etc. So I’ve had to compile a list including Station name, and location.I found all the  JSON “observation” data files on the BOM by running a spider on the BOM website, and then ran a JSON parser (using an iOS test app I’ve written), to confirm which links contain valid observation data.
However, I needed a list of weather stations with the full range of data, so my JSON test app filters out weather stations that are listed as “coastal observations” and also any station that can’t provide relative humidity (which is key to the App I’m writing)

To complicate matters, the Latitude and Longitude data in the JSON files is only given to 1 decimal place, but else where on the BOM greater accuracy is given. So I loaded the preliminary JSON stations list into a database (OpenOffice database), and did a “join” on a table I created from the master list of weather stations on the BOM.
This yielded data with station name, state, accurate latitude and longitude and the all important JSON URL.

The data below in CSV format as I find that CSV is often the most portable data format to use, as it’s easy to process in a spreadsheet.
