Abstract: The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is a comprehensive set of digital
spatial data that contains information about surface water features such as
lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, springs and wells. Within the NHD, surface
water features are combined to form "reaches," which provide the framework for
linking water-related data to the NHD surface water drainage network. These
linkages enable the ... View entire text
