The Bureau of Meteorology sync data from their Water Data Online API into the Esri Living Atlas, specifically the Live Stream Gauges layer.
Water Data Online provides access to nationally consistent, current and historical water information. Watercourse level and watercourse discharge time series data from approximately 3500 water monitoring stations across Australia are available.
Finding the layer
Add the layer into your web maps either directly from the item page, or by searching for it from the Living Atlas within your Map Viewer or ArcGIS Pro catalog window.
Make it your own (optional)
A good technique is to make the layer more relevant to your organisation and then share it as a new layer item to your users.
- Filter it down to just Australia:
- Use arcade to convert feet value to meters:
- Style and label layer as required
- Save as a new layer item and share with your organisation/groups
An example of a layer is shown in this web map.
Using the Layer
This layer can be added to your existing and new web maps very easily just like any other layer in your GIS.
