  2. Click Get Sites to get a list of observation sites available from your web service.
  3. Choose a site and click Get Site Info to see information about the site. In addition to formatting the web method output in an HTML table, the raw XML response from the web method is also shown in the bottom of the screen (this can be handy for debugging purposes).
  4. Click the Select button next to a variable at that site that you want to test.
  5. Choose a date range for retrieving a time series of data for the variable.
  6. Above the Get Values button, check the date range that you have selected, and then click Get Values.
