Aquatic Dataset

Data format: Personal GeoDatabase Feature Dataset

File or table name: Habitat

Coordinate system: Geographic

Theme keywords: Hydrography, Stream / River, Lake / Pond, Canal / Ditch, Reservoir, Spring / Seep, Swamp / Marsh, Artificial Path, Reach Code

Abstract: This dataset contains hydrographic data for New Mexico. The source data is the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). The NHD is a feature-based database that interconnects and uniquely identifies the sream segments or reaches that comprise the nation's surface water drainage system. Medium resolution NHD is based on the content of the U.S. Geological Survey 1:100,000-scale Digital Line Graph (DLG) hydrography data, integrated with reach-related information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Reach File Version 3.0 (RF3).

FGDC, ESRI, and NBII Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with brown text are defined in the NBII Biological Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains hydrographic data for New Mexico.  The source data is the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD).  The NHD is a feature-based database that interconnects and uniquely identifies the sream segments or reaches that comprise the nation's surface water drainage system.  Medium resolution NHD is based on the content of the U.S. Geological Survey 1:100,000-scale Digital Line Graph (DLG) hydrography data, integrated with reach-related information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Reach File Version 3.0 (RF3).

Purpose:
The National Hydrography Dataset is designed to provide comprehensive coverage of hydrologic data for the US. While initially based on 1:100,000-scale data, the NHD is designed to incorporate and encourage the development of higher-resolution data required by many users. It will facilitate the improved integration of water-related data in support of the application requirements of a growing national user community and will enable shared maintenance and enhancement.
