This statewide datalayer represents the stream-gaging
stations managed by USGS in 1994.
(ESRI Shapefile with ArcGIS .lyr and ArcView 3x .avl)
ManuscriptGaging station locations and attributes were derived from the data report "Water Resources Data, Massachusetts and Rhode Island Water Year 1994", Gadoury, R.A., Socolow, R.S., Girouard, G.G., Ramsbey, L.S., U.S. Geological Survey. The reference for this data report is MA-RI-94-1, 1995.
MethodologyUSGS staff created an ascii file of latitude, longitude and attribute data pulled from the data report. This file was then used to generate a point coverage. The coordinates were originally measured from USGS 1:25,000 and 1:24,000 topographic quadrangles with an accuracy to one second.
AttributesThis layer's point attribute table has the following items:
|STATION_||Gaging station identifier|
|LONG||Longitude of gaging station|
|LAT||Latitude of gaging station|
|FUND||Source of funding for gaging station maintenance|
|CODE||Funding source code|
MaintenanceMassGIS is maintaining this datalayer. Updates will be made as information is made available from USGS.
