I’m trying to upload a csv file downloaded from a Mayfly station to data.envirodiy.org. I’m getting an error message that states “Failure to upload data. This file corresponds to another site”. I’m certain that this file came from the site I’m attempting to upload it to. I suspect there is a formatting issue with my csv. I’ve attached csv here. Can anyone help me identify the issue? Thanks!
You’re missing some rows of your header. That file will definitely not work.
At minimum, you need the text “Sampling Feature UUID: ” before that UUID and another row that specifies the UTC offset with the text “Date and Time in UTC-#” where # is your offset. You can put all the result UUID’s on the row with the feature UUID as you’ve done, as long as the text “Sampling Feature UUID: ” is before that first UUID. See section 4.3: Uploading CSV Sensor Data # in https://wikiwatershed.org/help/sensor-help/sharing-sensor-data/ for more detail on the upload format.
Any boards programmed with current ModularSensors code (as yours were, unless you reprogrammed them) should be drag-and-drop ready for upload. You should not need to make any modifications to the file, unless it is too big. At this time, files over ~5000 rows need to be spliced into multiple shorter files, each with the same header. That size limit will be increased (hopefully) soon.
