Science Datasets

The data collected and the techniques used by USGS scientists should conform to or reference national and international standards and protocols if they exist and when they are relevant and appropriate. For datasets of a given type, and if national or international metadata standards exist, the data are indexed with metadata that facilitates access and integration.

Geospatial data and model archive associated with the two-dimensional hydraulic analysis of Joachim Creek, De Soto, Missouri

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 6.7-mile reach of Joachim Creek within and near the City of De Soto, Missouri, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the City of De Soto, Missouri. The flood-inundation maps depict estimates of the spatial extent, depth, and velocity corresponding to select flood events.
