These data are the rain gauge location components of a curated set of historical daily rainfall and streamflow data for a large region spanning the southern Amazonian rainforest and tropical savanna biomes of Brazil.
Rain gauge location attributes include: a site ID ("site"); the state within which the rain gauge is located ("state"); and the elevation in m above sea level ("elevation"). Rainfall gauge locations were obtained from free, publicly-available historical records from the Brazilian water management agency: Agência Nacional de Águas (ANA). Elevation data was obtained from SRTM 90m Digital Elevation Database v4.1.
For each unique site, there exists a corresponding time series record (see "Rain gauge data for the Brazilian rainforest-savanna transition zone"); these are identified by the same site ID numbers.
