AZ Major Streams

Data format: Shapefile

File or table name: AZMajorStreams

Coordinate system: Universal Transverse Mercator

Theme keywords: hydrography, perennial waters, streams

Abstract: These data were extracted as is from the data described in this metadata file. The data set consists of linear hydrography features in Arizona.. Converted in the fall of 1988 from USGS 1:100,000 scale DLG data to ARC format. Since then, multiple and extensive corrections have taken place. Early on, several Arizona agencies were part of rectification including: attributes, features, edgematching and the re-tiling of the data into the USGS Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) library tiling format. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has since added critical attributes to the Arizona database, including: A nationally recognized management link code (the Reach Id), names, and hydrologic information. Arizona has enhanced the theme further by adding ergonomic Descriptive Attribute Codes, Cartographic Order, more Names, and intense Quality Assurance Controls.

FGDC and ESRI 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 a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Arizona has enhanced the theme further by adding ergonomic Descriptive Attribute Codes, Cartographic Order, more Names, and intense Quality Assurance Controls.

Purpose:
The data are created to serve as base information for use in GIS systems for a variety of planning and analysis purposes.
These data do not represent a legal record.

Supplemental information:
This is a subset of the STREAMS dataset and contains  Perennial Streams (CLASS = 12, 13, 32, or 33) and associated hydro features.

Process description:
The arcs in this coverage were taken from the original STREAMS coverage by querying for CLASS = 12, 13, 32, 33 (Perennial streams).

Process description:
It was determined that stream names'*a' thru '*l' served no purpose and were therefore deleted from the Names column in the  Attribute Table. Only the names were deleted, not the actual streams.
