Streamflow Gaging Station Locations United States 2013

Description
This point dataset shows selected streamflow gaging stations of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, in 2013. Gaging stations, or gages, measure the height (stage) and volume of flow at a point location on a water feature. Gages in this map layer were drawn from the National Hydrography Dataset Plus (NHDPlus) Version 1 Stream Gage Events, NHDPlus Version 2 National Data - Gage Locations, and from the National Water Information System (NWIS) Web Interface. The gage positions were adjusted (snapped) using ArcGIS so that the gages were located directly on streams in the National Atlas map layer, 1:1,000,000-Scale Streams of the United States. The gages and streams also share attributes that link them together.
