National Hydrography Dataset - High Resolution - Minnesota

Metadata Updated: April 9, 2015

The high resolution National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is a feature-based database that interconnects and uniquely identifies the stream segments or reaches that make up the nation's surface water drainage system. The original medium-resolution NHD (scale 1:100,000) was created by merging the USGS 1:100,000 DLG linework with the USEPA RF3 (Reach File 3) attribution. High resolution NHD (scale: 1:24,000) adds more accurate and detailed stream and lake information to the original 1:100,000-scale NHD. High resolution NHD contains reach codes for networked features and isolated lakes, flow direction, names, stream level, and centerline representations for areal water bodies. Reaches are also defined to represent waterbodies (lakes) and the approximate shoreline of Lake Superior. USGS is working in cooperation with several agencies to create high-resolution NHD data for all major watersheds in Minnesota, using the DNR 1:24,000 streams and lakes linework as the base. These agencies include the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, the Land Management Information Center, the Spatial Analysis Research Center at St. Cloud State University, and the U. S. Forest Services Offices in the Chippewa and Superior National Forests.
