Projects and Sites

Admin and Scheduler users have access to the Projects & Sites menu.


Data in ESdat is organised in relation to Projects and Sites.

A Project typically represents a stage of work, however is quite flexible and can be adopted in many different ways to best represent your data or organisational structure.  

All data imported into ESdat, such as Lab Reports or field measurements, must be associated with a Project.

Sites can best be described as the address or facility that is being investigated or monitored.  Typically, a Site will be a single facility, such as a service station, industrial facility, landfill or mine site.

Multiple Projects can occur at a single site (as might occur with subsequent stages), and a Project can cover multiple Sites (such as a Project to monitor multiple Service Stations) 

Project and Site Association

When you are viewing a Site, you will see a list of all the Projects associated with your current Site, and vice-verca when you are viewing a Project:


Project Details

Project Details can be viewed and edited as shown on the screen below.          


Active Status

The “Active” status of the Project will determine if Lab Reports (and other data) can be added, edited or deleted for the Project.  When the “Active” checkbox is unchecked data can be viewed, but cannot be added, edited or deleted.

Profile Settings

The Profiles or Settings associated with a Project are used by default when selecting this project in the Site / Project filter in Data Views.

Deleting a Project

Admin Users can Delete active Projects, which will remove any associated data such as Lab Report and Field Data.  Deleting a Project does not deleted associated Sites.

Site Details

The Site Details can be viewed and edited as shown on the screen below.


Further description of the Site Details fields:

Site IDThe reference for the site used in the System.
Site NameA longer descriptive name for the site.
RestrictedWhen checked the site is restricted, else the site is unrestricted.
Asset CodeCode used to integrate with other internal software Systems. Asset codes are used for wells, locations, monitoring zones, sites and site groupings.
Site Location DescriptionDescribe the location to aid with identification.
Site Usage DescriptionThe primary usage of the site.
Coordinate SystemUsed for mapping the site.
Unit ProfileSelect Metric or English units of measurement
Location Code GenerationThe site prefix and the incremental count length are used for the auto generation of location codes as [Site Prefix][Location_Type][Counter].The incremental count length is the number of digits used to show the incremental count of Locations eg: if 2 then shows “RNDBH_01”, if 3 then shows “RNDBH_001”

Monitoring Zones

Monitoring Zones allow a site to be broken up into different Areas, or Monitoring Zones.   Locations can be associated with a Monitoring Zone which can be useful for filtering.

To define a new zone click Add Monitoring Zone, enter details and click Update. The optional Location Code Generator Prefix is concatenated into the auto generated location code for Locations create in this zone.



The Locations tab lists the Locations at a Site.  Locations can be added here individually, or can be added in bulk in Import / Update / Export, or can be added in the field portal.

Environmental Standards

Environmental Standards can be associated with a Site, which will trigger notifications to be sent if any exceedances are encountered during data imports.
