Waterway Locks (National) - National Geospatial Data Asset (NGDA) Locks

Metadata Updated: June 9, 2020

The Navigation Data Center had several objectives in developing the U.S. Waterway Data. These objectives support the concept of a National Spatial Data Provide public access to national waterway data October 24, 2018. Foster interagency and intra-agency cooperation through data sharing. Provide a mechanism to integrate waterway data (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Port/Facility and U.S. Coast Guard Accident Data, for example) Provide a basis for intermodal analysis. Assist standardization of waterway entity definitions (Ports/Facilities, Locks, etc.). Provide public access to the National Waterway Network, which can be used as a basemap to support graphical overlays and analysis with other spatial data (waterway and modal network/facility databases, for example). Provide reliable data to support future waterway and intermodal applications. Source of Data The data included in these files are based upon the Annual Summary of Lock Statistics published by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers/CEIWR, Navigation Data Center. The data are collected at each Corps owned and/or operated Lock by Corps personnel and towing industry vessel operators. This data was collected from the US Army Corps of Engineers and distributed on the National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD).
