Name Monitoring site
Short Description Spatial data for monitoring sites.
Definition Monitoring site:
Any station or location included in a Water Framework Directive (WFD) surveillance, operational or investigative monitoring programme.
Any monitoring station included in the EIONET WISE SoE network.
Methodology for obtaining data EIONET monitoring sites that are also WFD monitoring sites can be reported under the "Water Framework Directive - River Basin Management Plans - 2016 Spatial" reporting obligation. In this case, reporting the monitoring sites under WISE-5 is not needed.

Note that for WFD monitoring sites that are also EIONET monitoring sites, the WFD code is the main identifier (i.e. the "thematicIdIdentifier" value). The EIONET code should be reported in the "relatedToIdentifier" value, so that a relation can be established with the time series that was reported in the past under the former WISE SoE data flows.

For EIONET monitoring sites that are not WFD monitoring sites (including non-WFD sites reported in the past), the EIONET code is used as the main identifier (i.e. the "thematicIdIdentifier" value).
