These potential riparian connections were added to illustrate the contribution of streams and rivers in providing additional avenues for terrestrial and aquatic connectivity to the network of Natural Landscape Blocks and Essential Connectivity Areas developed for the California Essential Habitat Connectivity Project.
A product of the California Essential Habitat Connectivity Project - http://www.dfg.ca.gov/habcon/connectivity/, potential riparian connections were extracted from the Statewide 1:100k Routed Hydrography for California dataset (CDFG, Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission September 2003 - see original metadata elsewhere in this document). The original data file is a 1:100,000-scale stream-based routed hydrography covering the entire State of California. Named rivers and streams that were 30,000 feet in length or longer were extracted from the dataset and added to Figures 3.1 to 3.9 in the report. These potential riparian connections were added to illustrate the contribution of streams and rivers in providing additional avenues for terrestrial and aquatic connectivity to the network of Natural Landscape Blocks and Essential Connectivity Areas. This analysis was conducted by SC Wildlands.
SC Wildlands, adapted from USGS, DFG, PSMFC National Hydrography Database (NHD) 1:100,000 linework and attributes as well as Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) identifiers as guidelines to determine the stream networks that were referenced into routes. Utilizing both automatic routines developed by California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC).
