by Local-Resolution (1:2,400 scale) NHD Layers Added

We have added 3 layers to the IndianaMap Hydrology folder showing "Water Bodies Lakes LocalRes," "Water Bodies Rivers LocalRes," and "Water Bodies Streams LocalRes." These layers represent the latest release by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) of the local-resolution National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), 2013. NHD data was originally developed at 1:100,000-scale and exists at that scale for the whole country. Also, high-resolution NHD, generally developed at 1:24,000 to 1:12,000 scale, adds detail to the original 1:100,000-scale NHD. The local resolution NHD is developed at 1:2,400 scale, and adds even more detail to the NHD. This dataset is currently incomplete but includes data for the following HUC08 subbasins in Indiana: 05120104 (Upper Eel), 0712002 (Iroquois), 05120105 (Middle Wabash-Deer), 04120107 (Wildcat), 05120204 (Driftwood), 05120205 (Flatrock-Haw), 05120207 (Muscatatuck), and 05120110 (Sugar).
