  • *simplify, animate for clarity, dissolve several ideas into one, maybe some images of different productsNational: In the 1970s the USGS (United States Geological Survey) and Water Resources Council created a mapping and classification system that partitioned the U.S. into four hierarchically nested watershed levels. These levels, called Hydrologic Units, divided and subdivided drainage areas down to 250,000 acres (390 sq mi) portions. Over time, however, more detailed hydrologic studies required even smaller subdivisions than the Level 4 (Subbasin) HUs. Recently the USGS, in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), further divided the HU system into six levels of hydrologic units (down to 10,000 acres or 15 sq mi at their smallest). This expanded delineation system is known as the national Watershed Boundary Dataset.

  • - NHDPlus watersheds were delineated on 1:100k NHD hydro features using the 30m res. NED DEM even though 1:24k NHD and 10m NED are available and quality-checked.- 1:24k USGS topo maps have nearly double the number of features as the 1:100k USGS topo maps- Using a 10-meter DEM provides 9x more detail than a 30-meter DEM
  • Two-fold problem:1.)Misalignment2.) Lack of precision. If we wanted to use NHDPlus attributes, half of the features in the 1:24k WI hydrography would not be attributed

It is also one of the most important late Eighteenth Century maps showing the Transmississippi West and is highly praised (and illustrated) by Wheat: &quot;an important intermediate cartographic step between Soulard&apos;s highly rudimentary showing of the Missouri Basin, and the excellent charts of the river as far as the Mandan Villages drawn by McKay and Evans.&quot;

  • Upper Mississippi 1843First edition, first issue. A larger version of the accompanying map was issued in 1842 with scale of 1:600,000 - this version is unknown to us (and anyone else we have met)- Bray states that only 200 copies were printed; the House of Representatives issued this 1843 edition in 1845 with no changes, although Wagner Camp says the map was smaller and Bray states that it was a more faithful representation of the original 1842 map. See Donald Jackson, The Expeditions of John Charles Fremont, for a history of the Nicollet map and all the Fremont maps. Fremont worked extensively with Nicollet on this map and &quot;this was the work which trained Fremont in cartography.&quot; (Jackson). This map was the earliest accurate map of the Northern Plains and the Upper Mississippi. G.K. Warren, in his Memoir, stated that this &quot;map was one of the greatest contributions ever made to American geography.&quot; Nicollet died in 1843. His map was years ahead of its time, with its regional concept and sound basis in instrument readings and astronomically determined points. Goetzmann: &quot;Had he lived one more decade, Nicollet would undoubtedly have become the official government cartographer of the whole trans-Mississippi West.&quot; Rebound in brown fabric covers with &quot;Hydrographical Basin of the Upper Mississippi, I.N.

How is this database useful? • Modeling fish/insect natural communities in WI streams “In the absence of major human impacts, the occurrence and abundance of fishes and invertebrates in Wisconsin streams is determined largely by stream flow and water temperature […]. Of particular importance are the maximum water temperature and minimum flow in summer.” John Lyons, WDNR report, 2008

How is this database useful? • Modeled daily stream temperature for historic period (1990-2000) and forecasted for two periods in coming century (2046-2065 and 2081-2100) • Used artificial neural network modeling framework to select the primary drivers of daily stream temperature • Drivers included static watershed characteristics and dynamic weather metrics Stewart, J. et al.
