This dataset presents the location of points representing weather data at selected Sydney Schools. The urban weather data was collected by meteorological deployed by the Schools Weather and Air Quality (SWAQ) project. SWAQ is a citizen science project funded by the Commonwealth Government of Australia - Department of Industry Innovation and Science as part of its Inspiring Australia - Citizen Engagement Program.

The SWAQ project equips schools across Sydney with research-grade meteorology and air quality sensors, enabling students to collect and analyse research quality data through curriculum-aligned classroom activities. The data is freely available to the public, students and researchers alike, helping to maintain awareness of local weather and air quality conditions, and to contribute cutting-edge research into cleaner and healthier cities.
