Possible Cattle Access Points on Steams within the USGS Showcase Watersheds Derived from 2018 and 2019 NAIP Imagery

December 21, 2021

This data release contains one point shapefile describing cattle access to streams for three USGS showcase watersheds: Smith Creek, Conewago Creek, and Upper Chester River. This data release identifies areas where cattle were able to access the stream, as well as possible cattle access areas. Streams were defined using a combination of geospatial data and aerial imagery and cattle access points were determined by locating cattle paths adjacent to stream morphology.
