The StreamStats Program

Idaho

Version 3 is now available for all states

StreamStats version 3 is now available for all states. Version 2 has been retired. Currently, version 3 can only delineate drainage basins, compute basin characteristics, and estimate streamflow statistics using regression equations for user-selected sites. It also can provide reports of information for USGS data-collection stations. All other functionality that previously was available in version 2 will be added to version 3 as quickly as possible, with a goal of having all functionality available by the end of 2015.

Please help us conserve our server system resources by closing the Interactive Map window when you are finished using it. Doing so will help ensure system availability for all users. Thank you.

Also, please bookmark this page rather than the Interactive Map page, as the URL for the interactive map may change in the future.

Six reports document the regression equations available in StreamStats for Idaho, the errors associated with the estimates, and the methods used to develop the equations and to measure the basin characteristics used in the equations. The last report by Rea and Skinner (2009) includes full metadata descriptions and links to download the geospatial data sets used by StreamStats for Idaho. Users should familiarize themselves with these reports before using StreamStats to obtain estimates of streamflow statistics for ungaged sites.

 

Interactive Map

 

General information on the Interactive Map application, as well as specific sources and computation methods for basin characteristics are available here.

NOTE: Idaho StreamStats can be used to obtain estimates of flow statistics from regression equations for portions of northwestern Utah and northeastern Nevada that drain northward to the Snake River in Idaho. The Idaho regression equations are considered more applicable in this area than the Utah equations. Estimates of flow statistics from the Utah regression equations are not available for this area using the Utah StreamStats application, and StreamStats is not implemented for Nevada. In the Idaho user interface, when the map is zoomed into scales of at least 1:4 million, the areas of Utah and Nevada where estimates of flow statistics can be obtained are not hatched. Hatching appears along all other border areas in those states to indicate that the Idaho regression equations are not applicable there.

StreamStats for Idaho was developed in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, the Idaho Transportation Department, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, and the Bureau of Reclamation.
