The internal directory is for ISPD tracking, but it does help the user see in what version of ISPD that station was introduced.

For example, entry 77 was added in ISPD version 4.0 (from the ISPD40_add directory name),
while entry 26 was in ISPD version 1.1 and merged into ISPD version 2.2.4 (from the ISPD2_2_4/ispd1_1 name).

Thank you Yvan. That was a mistake for station 38. Confirmed from scanned image that the station name is correct but the position should be 16.24N, 61.54W, elevation 4 m. I'll correct the metadata in ISPD.

Also the whole list may include a few non-Canadian stations as I used a box to find the Canadian stations and manually removed those apparently non-Canadian stations.
