AK Hydro modified AWC Points in Southeast Alaska
These features ARE NOT AUTHORITATIVE CONTENT from the state's Anadroumous Waters Catalog.In in some instances, these points have been moved (via snapping) from their original position so they can integrate with the AK Hydro stream and networked features. The points are provided in this revised format so that they can be used for network analysis and cartographic apllications - they have no direct relationship to the AWC once published in this revised AK Hydro format.The Alaska Department of Fish and Game's (ADFG) Anadromous water bodies data is derived from the ADFG's GIS shape files for the "Catalog of Waters Important for Spawning, Rearing or Migration of Anadromous Fishes" (referred to as the "Catalog") and the "Atlas to the Catalog of Waters Important for Spawning, Rearing or Migration of Anadromous Fishes" (referred to as the "Atlas"). It is produced for general visual reference and to aid users in generating various natural resource analyses and products. The shape files depict the known anadromous fish bearing lakes and streams within Alaska (from the mouth to the known upper extent of species usage). It incorporates data from a variety of sources including: USGS Digital Line Graph (DLG) and National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) hydrography data; Alaska Department of Natural Resources hydrography layer; and ADF shape files for the "Atlas" and "Catalog". ADF updates the Anadromous Streams data regularly. Note that stream numbers, locations, extent of cataloged habitat or species utilization of a given stream may change from year to year. Data for the shape files are current as of the 2013 revision of the "Atlas to the Catalog of Waters Important for the Spawning, Rearing or Migration of Anadromous Fishes" and the "Catalog of Waters Important for the Spawning, Rearing or Migration of Anadromous Fishes" effective July 1, 2013. This particular data layer is for the Southeastern Region of Alaska.
