Classification & Watershed Delineation for DFMP Submissions
Many important initiatives related to the sustainable
natural resources management benefit from accurate delineation of
watersheds and classified hydrography information. Management of forest,
fish and wildlife, and water resources often depends on common and
government approved methodology and classification.
GISmo supports preparation of quality watersheds and related classified
information for government agencies (AENV,ASRD,CEMA) , research organizations
(ARC,ACA,FMF) and forest companies.
This specific project was to provide accurate Strahler classified
watershed boundaries for the Edson and Drayton Valley FMA suitable
for forest management planning activities while consistent with government
Specific project objectives were to:
||Apply Strahler classification to
stream network consistently with processes used on government
and related projects.
||Delineate reasonable accuracy watersheds and
create a seamless division of suitable administrative areas.
Hydro-corrected Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and attributed spatial
data sets addressed current client’s needs and allowed for creation
of expanded and comprehensive structures for future analysis and modeling.
