Hydrometric Gauging Station Network of the AAFC Watersheds project - 2013

Hydrometric Gauging Station Network of the AAFC Watersheds project - 2013 The “Hydrometric Gauging Station Network of the AAFC Watersheds Project - 2013” dataset is a geospatial data layer containing network line features representing links between hydrometric gauging stations of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Watersheds Project. Each line connects a gauging station to its downstream neighbour(s), indicating its drainage direction. This network is a ‘drainage’ network, not a ‘stream’ network. That is, the lines do not in any way portray the actual stream path between stations. In some instances, a lake, for example, an area may have several gauging stations. In such cases, one of the gauging stations is designated the ‘primary’ gauging station for calculation purposes, and to maintain proper hydraulic relationships between gauging stations, where only the primary stations are connected to the downstream portion of the network. 2021-07-27 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Agri-Geomatics-Agrog@agr.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentWatershedsHydrologyWaterDrainageInland watersWestern provinces Data Product Specification (English)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcWatersheds2013/en/ISO_19131_AAFC_Watersheds_Project_2013_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Pre-packaged GML files (Bilingual)GML https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/hyd/aafcWatersheds2013/gml/HYD_AAFC_GAUGING_STN_NETWORK_GML.zip Data Product Specification (French)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcWatersheds2013/fr/Projet_des_bassins_hydrographiques_d_AAC_2013_Specifications_de_contenu_informationnel_ISO_19131.pdf Pre-packaged FGDB files (Bilingual)FGDB/GDB https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/hyd/aafcWatersheds2013/fgdb/HYD_AAFC_GAUGING_STN_NETWORK_FGDB.zip Hydrometric Gauging Station NetworkESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_watershed_2013/MapServer/1 Hydrometric Gauging Station NetworkESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesdecarte/aac_bassin_hydrographique_2013/MapServer/1 Hydrometric Gauging Station NetworkWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/mapservices/aafc_watershed_2013/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=13&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Hydrometric Gauging Station NetworkWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/servicesdecarte/aac_bassin_hydrographique_2013/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=13&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
