Common methods to request data:
Shortly we are going to remove network code data from Geonet's Field Times Series (FITS) database. This is planned to take place on the 15th of August
This has come from requests from users to remove this meta-data as: * Specifying network code (networkID) for each site causes additional pain to people who manually and automatically retrieve FITS data. * All site codes (siteID) are unique so there is no need to specify network code. * Site information like network code is better retrieved from the single source of the truth, Geonet's DELTA application.
No, even if you specify networkID in your request, your request will still keep working as normal. But we hope that you will prefer to stop specifying it as it is not needed.
After the change these two requests will do exactly the same thing.
Possibly. There are two endpoints, site and spatial observation, that have networkID included in there response. From the 15th of August this will no longer appear in the response. If your script expects to process networkID, it may stop working.
