This map shows the channel boundary (2011) of the Colorado River mainstem between the Utah Colorado border and the upper pool of Lake Powell, Utah (146 miles). The channel boundary was mapped from public available NAIP imagery flown on June 28, 2011, when the river flow was 886 m3/s at the Cisco gage. The channel is subdivided into channel types: fast water (main channel, secondary channel), and still water types (backwater, isolated pool and tributary channel).

Conservation Planning for the Colorado River in Utah - Bat Watering Model Output Data for Colorado River in Utah
This is a habitat suitability model for bat watering in the Colorado River bottomland in Utah during high flow conditions. The model combines the presence of preferred slow water channel types (backwaters, isolated pools and tributary mouths), with cover types amenable to bat overflights and drinking 'on-the-wing'. See Open File Report, Rasmussen and Shafroth, Colorado River Conservation Planning for geoprocessing details.

This dataset represents vegetation communities, river channel and bare areas (often sand bars) mapped along the Colorado River bottomland in Utah, as of September 2010. Dominant cover types were classified as 'open flight', based on height, and potential interference with bat flights over water sources. Traditional image interpretation cues were used to develop the polygons, such as shape, size, pattern, tone, texture, color, and shadow, from high resolution, true color, aerial imagery (0.3m resolution), acquired for the project. Additional, public available aerial photos (NAIP, 2011) were used to cross-reference cover classes. As with any digital layer, this layer is a representation of what is actually occurring...
