Description

This data set was designed for cartographic presentation only and should not be used for hydrologic analysis.

1/31/08 - Removed USGS fields as this dataset has changed considerably from it's original USGS format - Water bodies w/same flow type and feature type have been merged into single entities. For example, water bodies split by a road or swamp feature, but are actually a single lake are merged to one feature - Added Label field to make it easier to symbolize - i.e. you can label lakes but exclude linear river features that are being labeled in the generalized rivers and streams layer - Changed field names to 10 characters or less for ease of conversion to shapefiles - Alias' added so above field name changes were easier to interpret The data set portrays the polygon water features (lakes, reservoirs, and rivers) of North Dakota. The file was produced by joining the individual State hydrography layers from the 1:2,000,000-scale Digital Line Graph (DLG) data produced by the USGS. This data setwas formerly distributed as Hydrography Features of the United States. This is a revised version of the November 1999 data set.


Summary

These data are intended primarily for cartographic display at the national level, and for large regional areas. The data should be displayed at scales appropriate for 1:2,000,000-scale data. The development of these data were primarily for small scale map production of the State on internet map servers and on printed maps of the State no larger in pagesize than about 11x17". No responsibility is assumed by the U.S. Geological Survey or the North Dakota GIS Technical Committee in the use of these data.

Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 1998-01-01
Description
The 2MILHY data files were originally digitized by the National Mapping Division based on the sectional maps contained in 'The National Atlas of the United States of America' published by the USGS in 1970. The 1:2,000,000-scale Digital Line Graph (DLG) data were merged into a single national water features coverage. Where necessary to effect the merge, alignment changes were made. The names were taken from the USGS 1:100,000-scale base maps. State attributes were assigned to the features.
