Full Site Name The full name of the gage site, as provided by the requestor, or most commonly used.

Geodetic Point ID A four character ID of the geodetic reference point
Assigned by USGS/NMD, this identifier refers specifically to the point measured, not the associated gage site.
After a prefix of "G" the existing gage ID is incorporated as the 2nd, 3rd and sometimes the 4th character.
Alternately, the 4th character may be assigned to create a unique ID where none existed before.
The 4th character defaults to an "X" when not needed to replicate the existing ID, or achieve uniqueness.
