Description:  

STRM_LOC_PT: The Stream Location Points dataset represents field collected spatial locations and basic information about the physical characteristics of a stream network, including inception points (stream origins), periodicity and continuity transitions, stream confluences, and complex stream courses.

Purpose:  

This dataset records field collected data points regarding the physical characteristics of a stream network. In turn, these data points help inform a more accurate spatial depiction of the linear stream location, which are updated in the USGS National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). These data points also inform the attribute transitions for periodicity and continuity, which are in turn depicted on the linear features in the NHD data and the Hydrography Events datasets respectively.
