Soil and Water (AICP)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Soil and water are the physical foundations for life, and great strides are being made through state and federal GIS projects to map, standardize, and deliver updated soil and water data.

  • NC's Stream Mapping Effort
             Cam McNutt

  • USGS Pursuing Ele-Hydro
             Silvia Terziotti
    The 3DEP and NHD programs within USGS have recognized the importance of maintaining integrated elevation and hydrography datasets. Steps that are being taken and the vision of future products will be discussed. States will be active participants, and ways in which they can contribute will be outlined.

  • NRCS SSURGO Soils Data

  • What's New in NC StreamStats ver. 3: Stronger, Streamlines, and Added Functionality!
             Katherine Kolb
    The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) introduced the updated web-based StreamStats interface, version 3, in Fall 2014. The new format provides a smoother interface and added functionality, such as web geoprocessing services. The StreamStats application provides an accurate and consistent process that allows users to easily obtain streamflow statistics, basin characteristics, and descriptive information for USGS data-collection sites, as well as user-selected ungaged sites. In the North Carolina StreamStats application, users can compute more than 40 basin characteristics and various peak-flow frequency statistics for a delineated drainage basin. Select streamflow statistics and basin characteristics for data-collection sites have been compiled from published reports, and available data for a site also are accessible by querying individual sites with the StreamStats interface. This presentation will describe the new StreamStats version 3 user interface and functionality, as well as plans for additional future enhancements.
