Start CT River ATLAS
The Atlas is a web portal designed to facilitate information exchange for resource managers, planners, and anyone interested in understanding landscape and environmental features of the Connecticut River Watershed. The Atlas provides a collection of land and water data, descriptions of the data, and links to other resources, organizations, and data sources. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has initiated this project to help assess the long-term sustainability of the Watershed's natural resources. This Atlas is currently a collaborative effort between the USGS and The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and we will continue to incorporate other partners in the future. For more background on the goal of working toward a sustainable watershed, see Project Background.
Data describing physical characteristics, cultural characteristics, biology, ecology, water flow and water quality are available through the Atlas. See About the Data for a detailed list of the data layers with explanations.
WATERSHED AND STREAM INFORMATION TOOL
Start Stream Information Tool
Users can interactively select a mapped stream segment in this Google Maps application. The tool then displays the watershed boundary for the selected stream and generates a PDF report (see an example report) with information about the stream and its watershed. Users have access to over 12,500 stream segments (from the National Hydrography Dataset Plus) in the CT River Watershed.
