The U.S. Geological Survey StreamStats Web Application
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Peter Steeves, Kernell Ries
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) StreamStats web application provides numerous tools needed for water-resource planning and management, including tools to obtain drainage-basin boundaries, compute basin characteristics, and estimate streamflow statistics for user-selected stream locations, as well as several tools for stream-network navigation. The USGS has worked with ESRI since 2001 to develop StreamStats, which has led to developing several ArcHydro tools.
