tblLocalities contains information about localities where specimens were found.

  • LocalityID, integer, 4 bytes, identifier for locality
  • FileID, integer, 4 bytes, = tblFiles.FileID


  • Level1ID, 1 character, = tblGeoLevel1.Level1ID
    • 0 = "Not recorded"
    • null = what?
  • Level2ID, 1 character, = tblGeoLevel2.Level2ID
    • 0 = various values from tblGeoLevel2 (this is not a foreign key by it self, it is composite with tblGeoLevel1)
    • null = what?
    • is stored value padded with spaces?
  • Level3ID, 3 characters (no digits), = tblGeoLevel3.Level3ID this is a foreign key for tblGeoLevel3
    • 0 = **NOT USED**
    • null = what?
    • is stored value padded with spaces?
  • Level4ID, 3 characters, = tblGeoLevel4.Level4ID
    • 0 = various values from tblGeoLevel2 (values like "830", "KO", "36"), this is not a primary key, it is composite with tblGeoLevel3
    • null = what?
    • is stored value padded with spaces?
  • GeoID, calculated as concatenation of above 4 columns No longer exists?
  • Latitude, decimal, precision 9, scale 6, degrees (+ for N, - for S), null permitted
  • Longitude, decimal, precision 9, scale 6, degrees (+ for E, - for W), null permitted
  • PrecisionCode, integer, 1 byte (still available, no longer used, will be converted for use as indicator of confidence in the supplied Lat/Long)
    • 0 = unspecified (default)
    • 1 = from locality label
    • 2 = estimated from map and locality label
    • 3 = based on county or similar modest area specified on locality label
    • 4 = estimated from less specific locality label
  • Elevation, integer, 2 bytes, elevation in meters, null permitted
  • MaxElevation, integer, 2 bytes, maximum elevation when there is a range, otherwise null
  • TimePeriodID, integer, 2 bytes, = tblTimePeriods.TimePeriodID, geologic time period
  • LocalityDetail, text, 300 characters maximum, place data not coded in any other field
  • TimeDetail, text, 300 characters maximum, details not coded in TimePeriodID
  • DataFlags, integer, 1 byte, bit flags for data status
    • 0 = what?
    • 1 = The disparity between geographic levels and the Latitude & Longitude was accepted by the user
    • 2 = The locality was last edited by a user during a localities test run
  • Country, text, 100 characters maximum, name of the country of collection (It is not required that this name match any data supplied in the GeoID (above))
  • State, text, 100 characters maximum, name of the state or province of collection
  • County, text, 100 characters maximum, name of the county or precinct of collection
  • BodyOfWater, text, 100 characters maximum, name of the body of water of collection
  • PrecisionRadius, integer, 4 bytes, radius of the circle of uncertainty of the accuarcy of the latitude and longitude data
  • LatLongFrom, integer, 4 bytes, indicator of when the Latitude/Longitude data was applied
    • 0 = Unknown (default)
    • 1 = Provided by the collector at collection time
    • 2 = Provided during data entry
  • LastUpdate, smalldatetime, date and time row last updated
  • ModifiedBy, integer, 4 bytes, FileUserID of the signon that made the change
  • CreatedOn, smalldatetime, date and time row was created
  • CreatedBy, integer, 4 bytes, FileUserID of the signon that created the row
