USGS StreamStats API available in EcoAtlas
Oct 2, 2015
How can someone click on a map and almost immediately determine the upstream catchment area to that designated point? StreamStats is a web service provided by the US Geological Survey to perform that critical function.
The service can be seamlessly incorporated into web maps to enhance their catchment-finding abilities. In July 2015, USGS released a new version of their StreamStats service, which SFEI recently incorporated into EcoAtlas.
Within EcoAtlas, the Landscape Profile Tool allows users to define an area of interest and generate a report summarizing datasets within this area. In addition to drawing or importing a polygon and selecting a pre-defined area, StreamStats can be used to delineate a basin from a user-defined pour point for planning or management purposes. We welcome you to read more about the value of StreamStats. Or learn more about EcoAtlas.
