Description:
Abstract:
This metadata describes watercourses data for the Oregon Framework Hydrography data and the standard system used to identify the states' surface water. The Watercourses (WC) layer consists of stream, canal, flume, pipeline and other linear hydrographic feature centerlines. Where these features (especially streams) are represented as double lined features at the source scale they are represented in this layer by their centerline. Streams that flow through water bodies such as lakes and reservoirs are also represented by a centerline.
Purpose:
The Framework goal is to utilize the framework data model that would enable various participants to locate and identify Oregon and Washington's marine and fresh surface water. The system was developed to provide a standard for referencing surface water bodies and watercourses, and to provide a vehicle for cross-referencing existing surface water data between agencies and groups in both GIS and tabular formats. It is intended that this physical data model provide the backbone whereby users may each attach and retain their own particular surface water data. The standard identifiers provided by this system will ideally facilitate data exchange on a wide scale amongst water management entities and reduce redundancy in data collection.
Supplemental_Information:
The data in this layer was extracted from the Pacific Northwest (Oregon & Washington) Hydrography Framework. For a complete metadata record go to the PNW hydro site at: <http://hydro.reo.gov/metadata/WatercoursesOregonWashington.htm>
