There is a large variety of monitoring stations. Examples of environmental monitoring stations include weather stations, stream gauges that check water levels in rivers, tide gauges that check sea level, noise monitoring, and air quality monitoring. Monitoring stations are also used to calibrate signals from global navigation satellite systems.

This tag doesn't refer to objects used to "monitor" - that means intercept, eavesdrop or wiretap - any communication infrastructure.



Define what is monitored:


No defaults are defined here since depending on the type of station, the operator and the things monitored it is impossible to define an always correct default value.
