Temporal data are generally less frequently available than spatial data. Some parameters in the national and international statistics are available on monthly basis. An example is national energy statistics, which, due to reporting obligations to EUROSTAT, are available on a monthly level. Temporal data on daily and hourly level are generally scarce, but data is available for e.g. road transport via traffic counts.
