Full Description

Rivers are dynamic, linearly continuous systems with unique survey challenges. Referencing river survey information spatially is often necessary to ensure accuracy and allows for powerful spatial analysis. We integrate six continuous river surveys on the Olympic Peninsula, WA into a GIS environment and create a platform for managing, sharing, and visualizing the surveys. We show how GIS can enhance our ability to understand rivers as landscapes and allow us to easily share that understanding with a wider audience.
