Title: USGS WDFW River Miles
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
Ecology created the GIS statewide river mile point layer in March 2007 by digitizing the river mile points depicted on the USGS 7½ minute (24k) topographic quadrangle maps. Some of the rivers have gaps in the river mile progression because several of the quadrangle maps do not have any river mile points, while a few were missing a point or two.In November 2014 Ecology added river mile points for the missing areas using Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's (WDFW) 1975 Stream Catalog, which only covers WRIA's 1 through 24. The Stream Catalog shows river miles for nearly every stream; however, only those water courses that have river miles from the USGS quadrangle maps were added.The field SOURCE denotes the source of the data point, USGS or WDFW. Discrepancies between the USGS and WDFW are documented in the Supplemental Information section.
Purpose:
Show Washington State river mile locations for hydrology projects.
Supplemental_Information:
Note that some water bodies have gaps in the river miles order. These mile points are missing in certain USGS quadrangle maps. 7½ minutes USGS quadrangle maps that lack USGS river miles: Aberdeen SE Auburn Bacon Peak Big Devil Creek Black Diamond Burnt Peak Carlisle Cathlamet Bay Chinook Clark Mtn Colfax North Copalis Crossing Des Moines Diamond Elberton Everett Fort Simcoe Glacier Gold Bar Grant Orchards Greenwater Groat Mountain Index Lake Lawrence Mabton East McKays Butte Maltby Maple Valley Moses Lake NW Mount Vernon Mt Blum Mt Juniper Mt Larabee Mt Lyall Mt Sefrit Naches Newaukum Lake Onalaska Onalaska NW Poverty Bay Prosser Puyallup Renton Rosburg Seattle South Smith Creek Butte Snohomish Snoqualmie Lake South Bend Stanwood Tacoma North Tacoma South Thorp Toppenish Mtn Trinity Vail Warrenton Western White Swan Whitstram On the Columiba River, mile 681 is missing since it's missing on the USGS 7½ quadrangle, Rice. Appears to be from an error made from the transition from the Inchelium to the Rice quadrangle map. See https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/gispublic/DataDownload/documents/USGS_RiverMile681.jpg.
