American Whitewater: National River Database
This interactive map and datbase provides access to river and stream flow data for all 50 states in the U.S. Users first select from an alphabetical list of rivers by state, a state list arranged by drainage basin, or an alphabetical list of state gauges. Clicking on any state on the map then brings up the selected data for that state. Data includes class, flow level (cfs), and a relative level (low, medium, high). Clicking on individual stream or river listings accesses other information including length of run, gradient, and a written description with photos. Users can also enter comments from this page.
