Hello Erik,

I would suggest visiting the NHD (National Hydrography Dataset) web site at http://nhd.usgs.gov/.  It's not perfect (nothing is), but it is actively maintained.

Subject: [gis_info] Rivers GIS data question

I'm wondering if someone might be able to point me in the right direction for a particular data set. I've used a bazillion different river/stream data sets over the years, but haven't found the perfect one for our needs.  I'm looking for something that is just a notch below the common layers out there showing every stream and tributary. In other words, I'd like to see most streams, but not every tiny tributary to it(too busy looking).  1:24k accuracy and stream names in the attribute table would be a big plus.  From what I've seen it's either data that shows every single stream and trib or you only get the biggest rivers.  Hopefully I've just overlooked an obvious source that someone could point out.

Thanks in advance for any tips,
