StreamStats
Entry ID: USGS_STREAMSTATS
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: StreamStats is an integrated Geographic Information System (GIS) application
that uses ArcIMS, ArcSDE, ArcGIS, and the ArcHydro Tools to make the process of
computing streamflow statistics much faster, more accurate, and more consistent
than previous manual methods. StreamStats incorporates (1) a map-based user
interface for site selection, (2) a database that provides streamflow
statistics and other information for data-collection stations, (3) a GIS
program that determines boundaries of the drainage basins for ungaged sites,
measures the physical characteristics of the drainage basins, and solves
regression equations to estimate streamflow statistics for the sites, and (4) a
GIS database needed to display maps and determine the physical characteristics
of the drainage basins. When implemented for individual states, users can
obtain previously published streamflow statistics and other information for
USGS data-collection stations by clicking on the station locations in the
StreamStats user interface. Users also can obtain estimates of streamflow
statistics and basin characteristics for ungaged sites by clicking on the site
locations in the interface. A prototype version of StreamStats is currently
working for Idaho.

Quality
The StreamStats Web application provides access to automated procedures and
very large, complex data sets. These data sets are known to contain occasional
errors. Users are hereby advised to carefully check all results for accuracy
and to exercise their own professional judgment in evaluating the
appropriateness of the results for their application. Basin delineations in
particular frequently have been found to be erroneous. The Web site provides
tools and base maps useful for verifying the accuracy of the basin delineations.
Use Constraints
The U.S. Geological Survey expressly disclaims responsibility for damages or
liability that may arise from use of these data.
