In cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the Susquehanna River Basin Commission, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) calculated over 20 different basin characteristics as part of preparing the Pennsylvania StreamStats 2020 application. These datasets are raster representations of various environmental, geological, and land use attributes within the Pennsylvania StreamStats 2020 study area, and will be served in the Pennsylvania StreamStats 2020 application to describe delineated watersheds. The StreamStats application provides access to spatial analytical tools that are useful for water-resources planning and management, and for engineering and design purposes. The map-based user interface can be used to delineate drainage areas, get basin characteristics and estimates of flow statistics, and more.
