Web Services and Tools
StreamStats utilizes several USGS web services, many of which are managed by the StreamStats Team. A list of these web services and other useful tools can be found below.
- The Gage Statistic (GageStats) Services were developed to provide gage characteristics and streamflow statistics to support the StreamStats application via RESTful principles. The StreamStats application uses GageStats Services to display the gages and related gage pages. These services provide U.S. Geological Survey developed and published gage characteristics such as drainage area or mean basin
- Provides U.S. Geological Survey developed and published regression equations for estimating streamflow statistics such as mean annual and monthly mean flows, flow-duration percentiles, and peak and low flows.
- This software release contains Python functions for weighting multiple non-independent estimates of a variable. Weighting is determined by the standard error of prediction of each estimate and the correlation between the estimation methods. The methodology for weighting estimates from either two or three different methods is described in Chase and others (2020). A function is also included to han
- Provides multiple water use resources, such as categories, source types, use types as well as watershed summary resource, which aggregate selected source time series by watershed location to provide a simple annual and monthly watershed summary; grouped by defined source, use, category, and month to watershed managers.
The Flow-Conditioned Parameter Grid (FCPG) Tools are a Python 3 library to make FCPGs for either two-digit Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC2) regions, four-digit Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC4) regions, or other geospatial tiling schemes. These tools can be used in a Linux-based high performance computing (HPC) environment or locally on your system.
