Legacy Data for Water Resources for Alaska GIS datasets Regional Coverages

Northwest

Kobuk River Basin (Gates of the Arctic National Park and Kobuk Valley National Park)
Includes Basin Boundaries, Hydrography, Digital Elevation Models, and Basin Coverages

Unalakleet Drainage Area
This dataset is a polygon coverage of drainage area of the Unalakleet River above mouth of Chiroskey River (original site) and current gaging site, 15565700, Unalakleet River above Chiroskey River near Unalakleet, Alaska. This dataset was digitized from USGS 1:63,360 quadrangle maps and mapjoined to HUC boundary coverage which was digitized from USGS 1:250,000 quadrangle maps.

The dataset contains only the delineated drainage areas for the above gaging sites. There are no basin characteristics for these drainage areas.
