How to use

The National Environmental Monitoring Sites Register (NEMSR) can be accessed in two ways.

1. Data viewer

In the data viewer, users can select one or more networks to view and explore using this interactive mapping tool. They can also 'drag and drop' their own data onto the map. A quick start guide for using NEMSR through the data viewer is available here .

2. NEMSR API

In addition to access through the NEII Viewer, NEMSR data can be accessed programmatically through web service endpoints provided for each registered network. Users can embed these URLs in their applications. The list of registered networks and their web service endpoints available in the NEMSR are shown below.
