DATA ELEMENT WITH QUANTITATIVE VALUES

Identifier waterBodyIdentifier
Short name Water body ID
RegistrationStatus Released 13 October 2015
Reference URL http://dd.eionet.europa.eu/dataelements/latest/waterBodyIdentifier
Name Water body identifier
Definition Unique international identifier of the water body in which the data were obtained.
Methodology for obtaining data This value is required.

If the water body was reported as a WFD water body, enter the WFD identifier of the water body (EUSurfaceWaterBodyCode for rivers and lakes water bodies, EUGroundwaterBodyCode for groundwater bodies).

If the water body was not reported as a WFD water body, enter the EIONET international identifier of the water body.

The "waterBodyIdentifier" is a unique value in the list of water bodies for a given "waterBodyIdentifierScheme". For each "waterBodyIdentifierSheme" value, a list of valid "waterBodyIdentifier" values will be kept updated, based on the information reported under the WISE Spatial data flow.

First 2 characters must be the 2-alpha character ISO country code (use 'EL' for Greece and 'UK' for the United Kingdom).

Do not use characters with accents and other diacritical marks (national characters). Do not use spaces or other special characters. The hyphen '-' and the underscore '_' characters are allowed.

An EIONET identifier can be created by prefixing the national water body identifier with the 2-alpha character ISO country code.
Example: country: Austria, national water body identifier: WB_abc => "waterBodyIdentifier": ATWB_abc

Please guarantee that the "waterBodyIdentifier" is unique and exists in the applicable "waterBodyIdentifierScheme".
