Australian Speleological Federation KID: ASF Codes

Codes for the ASF KID

This document was created from the ASF KID on Tue Feb 07, 2023

This is the current list of the English meanings for the field value codes in the ASF's KID. They are identical with the codes of the Informatics Commission (UISIC) of the International Union of Speleology. The codes represent factual data about caves and karst features. They are (1) codes, and (2) numeric, so that they are independent of any spoken language. A side-benefit is that they are very compact for storage and transfer.

The full list of all definitions is here: Field Definitions.    The full list of all field value codes is here: Field Value Codes.

To find a field name in this list use your browsers search facility to search for the text or partial text. If you know the FID, you can go straight to the field by adding #fid to the URL in your browser window and pressing <Return>.
