This shapefile contains polygons representing the stream basins of the Allegheny River watershed in western New York. Basins were developed for stream segments at the 1:24,000 scale from 7.5 minute topographic quadrangles. For the purposes of this study, a stream segment is defined as the portion of stream from tributary confluence to tributary confluence.
To define the drainage basin for each stream segment.
This dataset was developed as part of the "Application of Gap Analysis to Aquatic Biodiversity Conservation", a pilot study by the New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. See <http://aquagap.cfe.cornell.edu/>
