Abstract:
A shapefile of 387,237 points statistically chosen from the February 2005 version of the Washington DNR Hydrography layer representing stream site locations.
For details, see the Design Documentation created by 3/18/2006 by Tony Olsen (U.S. EPA) and Janelle Black (NW Indian Fisheries Commission). It is available from Glenn Merritt (Washington State Department of Ecology) and will be posted here: <http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/eap/stsmf/mss.html>
Purpose:
To provide a common set of probabilistic sites for sharing efforts in monitoring rivers and streams.

Attribute_Definition_Source:
strah_ord : No convenient method was available to determine Strahler order for the DNR frame. As an approximation, the Strahler order assignments from 1:100K RF3 digital hydrography were used by creating a 60 meter buffer along the 1:100 K hydrography, then overlaying the DNR master sample on this buffered network. Points falling within the buffer were assigned the corresponding 1:100 K Strahler order. If a point fell outside the buffer, it was assigned Strahler order “0
