Radar data needed! Help us with the data gathering
Royal meteorological institue in Belgium they are using 3 Weather radar
In Australia we have free access as to the government run (Bureau Of Meteorology) Unsure if they would allow this to be utilised for another weather site but worth a try.
Guys fantastic site, as a amature weather enthusiast I use it and recommend it the most. The Australian BOM will help they are flexible and progressive. There will be BOM staff with the best contact details watching this thread...

Please see the FTP site below for Australian radar data.
Keep up the great work.

The evening news uses the data from Metservice, but I'm not sure if they use or swap the data with NIWA. I'm also not sure if they charge.
