Template:ChadoTable nd geolocation

Jump to: navigation, search

This template is a Chado Table Template. It defines a single table from the Chado schema, and every Chado table has a template like this one. This template is automatically included in two places:

  1. The module page for the module the table is a part of. This is where updates and comments should be posted.
  2. The Chado Tables page, which lists all tables.

You can include this template anywhere you want to show the table description.

Table: nd_geolocation
Module: Natural Diversity

The geo-referencable location of the stock. NOTE: This entity is subject to change as a more general and possibly more OpenGIS-compliant geolocation module may be introduced into Chado.

nd_geolocation columns
FK Name Type Description
nd_geolocation_id serial PRIMARY KEY
description character varying(255) A textual representation of the location, if this is the original georeference. Optional if the original georeference is available in lat/long coordinates.
latitude real The decimal latitude coordinate of the georeference, using positive and negative sign to indicate N and S, respectively.
longitude real The decimal longitude coordinate of the georeference, using positive and negative sign to indicate E and W, respectively.
geodetic_datum character varying(32) The geodetic system on which the geo-reference coordinates are based. For geo-references measured between 1984 and 2010, this will typically be WGS84.
altitude real The altitude (elevation) of the location in meters. If the altitude is only known as a range, this is the average, and altitude_dev will hold half of the width of the range.
