District Site ID (SID)
Site Identifier(SID) is a District-assigned unique numeric identifier for a particular geographical location at which data are collected. Data collection sites are most commonly represented as points but they can also be lines or polygons. To search by SID, enter the SID in the SID text entry box. NOTE: Multiple SIDs can be entered, separated by a comma. A list of District Site IDs in comma-delimited text format can also be uploaded by the user via the Upload Site List button.
District Site Name
District Site Name is the name assigned by the District for a particular geographic location at which data are collected. Each SID has an associated District Site Name. The District Site Name field enables the user to search by the District Site Name if they know either part or the entire name of the data collection site as it appears in the database. For example, if the user is searching for “PEACE RIVER AT NOCATEE”, the user can enter the entire name or just “PEACE” or only “NOCATEE”, and all sites having those words within their designated District Site Name will be returned.
