Site specifications

coordinate system/grid data:
latitude/longitude, format: DD
datum (e.g. WGS84):
WGS84
 
number of sites:
>1000
exact number of sites:
1058
comments:
The spatial extent of the database is the drainage bassin, so the "number of sites" refered above is actually the number of drainage bassins
