GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Hydrologic Units - River Basins" (1998)
Description: The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, Raleigh Office in cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information & Analysis, and the NC Dept. of Environment, Health and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality developed the Hydrologic Units-North Carolina digital data to track resource and conservation activities in the state's river basins and subbasins. Using the 14-digit hyrologic unit code the regional, subregional, accounting, cataloging, NRCS sub-unit, and NRCS reporting unit boundaries id's are recorded. The area attributes allow the user to see hydrologic unit, river basin and subbasin levels of geography. This River Basins file was produced from the Hydrologic Units data and identifies the major NC river basins. This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
