GLOBE Data User Guide

Learn how to access and interpret GLOBE data with our Data User Guide. Inside, you can find appendices on our associated metadata, the types of variables available for download, primers on our different protocols, and more.

Our data is collected and submitted by GLOBE-trained teachers, students, and citizen scientists. We also collect additional data via automated weather stations and individual data loggers. Through the hard work of these participants, over 200 million measurements have been logged into our archives and made available for public use.

To discover all the various ways to use GLOBE data, download the GLOBE Data User Guide (PDF).
