Dataset: Real-time air temperature map of Tasmania


Description

A statewide grid surface (80m spatial resolution) delineating recent air temperature (Degree Celsius, oC) of Tasmania is produced in near real-time. The outputs are dynamic with air temperature maps updated at half-hourly intervals (there is a production time lag where outputs typically take 30 minutes to be produced from the true observation time).

Map outputs are based on records produced from 43 Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) Automatic Weather Station sites with further bias correction provided by 267 independent air temperature logger recording sites (courtesy of the Tasmanian Government Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE)). For operational real-time application, the mapping was fully automated in the R programming language and hosted on a cloud-based computing platform courtesy of Sense-T and hosted on the high performance computing cluster provided by the Tasmanian Partnership of Advanced Computing (TPAC) of the University of Tasmania.
