HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_POINT_NHD_USGS.SHP is derived from the feature class named "NHDPoint" of the High-Resolution National Hydrography Dataset (2008), created by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Personnel of the USGS provided the Indiana Geological Survey an ESRI file geodatabase named NHD11015_IN.MDB. If users desire complete geodatabases, with all event tables and other modeling resources available in the full data suite, it can be downloaded by subregion (HUC04 level data) from either of the two Web links: <ftp://nhdftp.usgs.gov/SubRegions/> <http://nhdgeo.usgs.gov/viewer.htm>

HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_POINT_NHD_USGS.SHP is intended to be used with three associated shapefiles named HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_FLOWLINE_NHD_USGS.SHP, HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_WATERBODYLINEAR_NHD_USGS.SHP, and HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_WATERBODYDISCRETE_NHD_USGS.SHP.

Description:
Abstract:
HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_POINT_NHD_USGS.SHP is a point shapefile that contains locations of gaging stations, gates, lock chambers, reservoirs, springs, seeps, sinks, rises, waterfalls, and wells in watersheds in and around Indiana. HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_POINT_NHD_USGS.SHP is derived from the high-resolution version of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), which was made available for all of Indiana in 2008.

The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is a feature-based database that interconnects and uniquely identifies the stream segments or reaches that make up the nation's surface water drainage system. NHD data was originally developed at 1:100,000-scale and exists at that scale for the whole country. This high-resolution NHD, generally developed at 1:24,000/1:12,000 scale, adds detail to the original 1:100,000-scale NHD. (Data for Alaska, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands was developed at high-resolution, not 1:100,000 scale.) Local resolution NHD is being developed where partners and data exist. The NHD contains reach codes for networked features, flow direction, names, and centerline representations for areal water bodies. Reaches are also defined on waterbodies and the approximate shorelines of the Great Lakes, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico. The NHD also incorporates the National Spatial Data Infrastructure framework criteria established by the Federal Geographic Data Committee."

Purpose:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"The NHD is a national framework for assigning reach addresses to water-related entities, such as industrial discharges, drinking water supplies, fish habitat areas, wild and scenic rivers. Reach addresses establish the locations of these entities relative to one another within the NHD surface water drainage network, much like addresses on streets. Once linked to the NHD by their reach addresses, the upstream/downstream relationships of these water-related entities--and any associated information about them--can be analyzed using software tools ranging from spreadsheets to geographic information systems (GIS). GIS can also be used to combine NHD-based network analysis with other data layers, such as soils, land use and population, to help understand and display their respective effects upon one another. Furthermore, because the NHD provides a nationally consistent framework for addressing and analysis, water-related information linked to reach addresses by one organization (national, state, local) can be shared with other organizations and easily integrated into many different types of applications to the benefit of all."

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"Statements of attribute accuracy are based on accuracy statements made for U.S. Geological Survey Digital Line Graph (DLG) data, which is estimated to be 98.5 percent. One or more of the following methods were used to test attribute accuracy: manual comparison of the source with hardcopy plots; symbolized display of the DLG on an interactive computer graphic system; selected attributes that could not be visually verified on plots or on screen were interactively queried and verified on screen. In addition, software validated feature types and characteristics against a master set of types and characteristics, checked that combinations of types and characteristics were valid, and that types and characteristics were valid for the delineation of the feature. Feature types, characteristics, and other attributes conform to the Standards for National Hydrography Dataset (USGS, 1999) as of the date they were loaded into the database. All names were validated against a current extract from the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The entry and identifier for the names match those in the GNIS. The association of each name to reaches has been interactively checked, however, operator error could in some cases apply a name to a wrong reach.

"This statement is generally true for the most common sources of NHD data. Other sources and methods may have been used to create or update NHD data. In some cases, additional information may be found in the NHDMetadata table."

Logical_Consistency_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"Points, nodes, lines, and areas conform to topological rules. Lines intersect only at nodes, and all nodes anchor the ends of lines. Lines do not overshoot or undershoot other lines where they are supposed to meet. There are no duplicate lines. Lines bound areas and lines identify the areas to the left and right of the lines. Gaps and overlaps among areas do not exist. All areas close."

Completeness_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"The completeness of the data reflects the content of the sources, which most often are the published USGS topographic quadrangle and/or the USDA Forest Service Primary Base Series (PBS) map. The USGS topographic quadrangle is usually supplemented by Digital Orthophoto Quadrangles (DOQs). Features found on the ground may have been eliminated or generalized on the source map because of scale and legibility constraints. In general, streams longer than one mile (approximately 1.6 kilometers) were collected. Most streams that flow from a lake were collected regardless of their length. Only definite channels were collected so not all swamp/marsh features have stream/rivers delineated through them. Lake/ponds having an area greater than 6 acres were collected. Note, however, that these general rules were applied unevenly among maps during compilation. Reaches codes are defined on all features of type stream/river, canal/ditch, artificial path, coastline, and connector. Waterbody reach codes are defined on all lake/pond and most reservoir features. Names were applied from the GNIS database. Detailed capture conditions are provided for every feature type in the Standards for National Hydrography Dataset available online through <http://mapping.usgs.gov/standards/.>

"This statement is generally true for the most common sources of NHD data. Other sources and methods may have been used to create or update NHD data. In some cases, additional information may be found in the NHDMetadata table."

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"Statements of horizontal positional accuracy are based on accuracy statements made for U.S. Geological Survey topographic quadrangle maps. These maps were compiled to meet National Map Accuracy Standards. For horizontal accuracy, this standard is met if at least 90 percent of points tested are within 0.02 inch (at map scale) of the true position. Additional offsets to positions may have been introduced where feature density is high to improve the legibility of map symbols. In addition, the digitizing of maps is estimated to contain a horizontal positional error of less than or equal to 0.003 inch standard error (at map scale) in the two component directions relative to the source maps. Visual comparison between the map graphic (including digital scans of the graphic) and plots or digital displays of points, lines, and areas, is used as control to assess the positional accuracy of digital data. Digital map elements along the adjoining edges of data sets are aligned if they are within a 0.02 inch tolerance (at map scale). Features with like dimensionality (for example, features that all are delineated with lines), with or without like characteristics, that are within the tolerance are aligned by moving the features equally to a common point. Features outside the tolerance are not moved; instead, a feature of type connector is added to join the features.

"This statement is generally true for the most common sources of NHD data. Other sources and methods may have been used to create or update NHD data. In some cases, additional information may be found in the NHDMetadata table."

Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided by the USGS for the high-resolution NHD:

"Statements of vertical positional accuracy for elevation of water surfaces are based on accuracy statements made for U.S. Geological Survey topographic quadrangle maps. These maps were compiled to meet National Map Accuracy Standards. For vertical accuracy, this standard is met if at least 90 percent of well-defined points tested are within one-half contour interval of the correct value. Elevations of water surface printed on the published map meet this standard; the contour intervals of the maps vary. These elevations were transcribed into the digital data; the accuracy of this transcription was checked by visual comparison between the data and the map.

"This statement is generally true for the most common sources of NHD data. Other sources and methods may have been used to create or update NHD data. In some cases, additional information may be found in the NHDMetadata table."

Process_Description:
The feature class named "NHDPoint" contained within the file geodatabase named "NHD11015.MDB" was loaded into ESRI ArcMap. NHDPoint was exported to ESRI shapefile format, and named HYDROGRAPHY_HIGHRES_POINT_NHD_USGS.SHP. The following fields were deleted from the shapefile's attribute table: "Reachcode," and "Resolution." Also, a field named "Type" was added to the attribute table and populated with descriptions derived from coded values given in the field named "FType." ArcToolBox was then used to reproject the shapefile to Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) Zone 16, NAD 83.
