Description:
Abstract:
Polygon shapefile that includes the subbasins of the Susquehanna River Basin (2006 boundary).  The 6 subbasins include the Upper Susquehanna, Chemung, Middle Susquehanna, West Branch Susquehanna, Juniata, and Lower Susquehanna.   This file was created by dissolving the wshed24K dataset into the 6 major subbasins.  The boundary between the Upper Susq. and Chemung Subbasins was updated to match the SRBC delineated subbasin line that exists on 1:24,000 scale USGS topographic maps.
Purpose:
Dataset developed to fit the needs of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission and is intended for educational display purposes only.
Supplemental_Information:
Largest scale to be used when displaying the data- 1:24,000

Process_Description:
Added field "Subbasin" to wshd24k.shp.  Populated field according to which subbasin each watershed was located in based on the original subbasin dataset.  Dissolved wshed24k based on the "Subbasin" field.  Updated Area, Perimeter, and SQM fields in the new subbasin dataset.
