|Used With:||area, geoAddr, tz, weatherRef|
Building or other type of facility with unique street address.
A site entity models a single facility using the
site tag. A good rule of thumb is to model any building with its own street address as its own site. For example a campus is better modeled with each building as a site, versus treating the entire campus as one site.
Core tags used with sites:
geoAddr: the geographic free-form address of the site (which might include other geolocation tags such as
tz: the timezone where the site is located
area: square footage or square meters of the facility. This enables site normalization by area.
weatherRef: associate the site with a weather station to visualize weather conditions and perform weather based energy normalization
primaryFunction: enumerated string which describes the primary function of the building
yearBuilt: four digit year in which the building was constructed
Here is an example of a site entity fully tricked out with geolocation tags:
id: @whitehouse dis: "White House" site area: 55000ft² tz: "New_York" weatherRef: @weather.washington geoAddr: "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC" geoStreet: "1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW" geoCity: "Washington D.C." geoCountry: "US" geoPostalCode: "20500" geoCoord: C(38.898, -77.037)
