If you want some background about General Format for Email Data Entry Measurements a guide is available at the following URL https://www.globe.gov/documents/10165/0/GLOBE+Email+Data+Entry+Instructions.html in the section 'General Format for Measurements'. Included below is an excerpt:
- Depending on the protocol report being submitted, the original-format of the site identifier field is either a 6 character code (for example: ATM-01), or a simple number 1 through 999. If you have an older site that was not created with the new GLOBE website, you may continue to use this format when specifying the site identifier/number. Sites created with the new GLOBE website no longer support the old site identifier/number format. The Site ID format below will work for sites created with the old GLOBE website, and must be used for sites created with the new GLOBE website.
- The new GLOBE website assigns a numeric number (siteid) to every site created for an organization. The numeric siteid of an organization's site can be looked-up using the Data Entry application via the GLOBE website, or be provided by your Partner or Country Coordinator. If using this format, you may prefix the numeric siteid with 'SITE_ID:'.
for example: SITE_ID:51474
Also, Site ID allows you to not prefix the numeric siteid with 'SITE_ID:':
for example the following will work as well: 51474
