States do maintain some level of information regarding the consumptive use of water by various sectors. This information is not regularly updated unless the information is mandated due to an ongoing environmental concern, state agreement, or compact. Many states who do estimate this category of water information release the information on an annual or multi-year basis. The period of record for consumptive water use is specific to each agency and their adopted program. Because of the variability between methods and the spatial and temporal disparity between states, this is a highly specific set of information. Consumptive use of water is a target dataset for the WSWC's Water Data Exchange (WaDE) program, and all...

States maintain databases that store water allocations, their owners, priority dates, legal status, and beneficial use categories. State water rights information is usually updated on an ad-hoc and ongoing basis. Some states issue quarterly updates to share their information with the public. Others have searchable database interfaces on their websites. The period of record for water rights information is as far-reaching as the agency itself. All states gather water allocation information, but western states use the prior appropriation doctrine to ensure the water is put to beneficial use. Water rights are a target dataset for the WSWC's Water Data Exchange (WaDE) program, and all states that are interested in sharing...

States maintain some records concerning places where water is withdrawn (points of diversion) and also some information about the amount of water that is withdrawn over time. They may also track specific diversions within a water right by its designated beneficial use category. States' diversion data can be updated on an ad-hoc basis or it may be subject to reporting requirements and be reported/recorded on a more set timeframe. The time that the information is updated internally varies and is specific to each agency's mission. Most states maintain this information in a database format. Water diversions are a target dataset for the WSWC's Water Data Exchange (WaDE) program, and all states that are interested in...

A joint venture involving the National Atlas programs in Canada (Natural Resources Canada), Mexico (Instituto Nacional de Estadística Geografía e Informática), and the United States (U.S. Geological Survey), as well as the North American Commission for Environmental Co-operation, has led to the release (June 2004) of several new products: an updated paper map of North America, and its associated geospatial data sets and their metadata. These data sets are available online from each of the partner countries both for visualization and download. The North American Atlas data are standardized geospatial data sets at 1:10,000,000 scale. A variety of basic data layers (e.g. roads, railroads, populated places, political...
Water rights in the State of Kansas are complex and dynamic entities that permit their owners the privilege of appropriating water for beneficial use. The amount of information collected on water rights is extensive and increases each year. The Kansas Department of Agriculture, Division of Water Resources (KDA-DWR), currently maintains an Oracle-based RDBMS called the Water Rights Information System (WRIS). The WRIS contains over 70 relational tables that store data on points of diversion (e.g. ground-water wells and surface water intakes), place of use, authorized quantity and rate allocations, historic reported water usage, and a host of other parameters. The ability to extract out information from the WRIS data...

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) produced the first diagrams illustrating U.S. national commodity use in the mid-1970s. The most widely recognized of these charts is the U.S. energy flow chart. LLNL has also published charts depicting carbon (or carbon dioxide potential) flow and water flow at the national level as well as energy, carbon, and water flows at the international, state, municipal, and organizational (e.g., Air Force) level. Flow charts, also referred to as Sankey Diagrams, are single-page references that contain quantitative data about resource, commodity, and byproduct flows in a graphical form. These flow charts help scientists, analysts, and other decision makers to visualize the complex...

The Gap Analysis Program (GAP) Land Cover Viewer displays data on the vegetation and land use patterns of the continental United States. The GAP Land Cover Data Version 2.2 provides detailed information on the vegetation of the United States using consistent satellite base data and classification systems. This allows data users to make conservation or land use planning decisions for the entire range of a habitat type across administrative boundaries. GAP Land Cover Data Version 2.2 combines ecological system data from previous GAP projects in the Southwest, Southeast, and Northwest United States with recently updated California data. For Alaska ,and areas of the continental United States, where ecological system-level...

The Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is a geodatabase that illustrates and describes public land ownership, management and conservation lands nationally, including voluntarily provided privately protected areas. The lands included in PAD-US are assigned conservation measures that qualify their intent to manage lands for the preservation of biological diversity and to other natural, recreational and cultural uses; managed for these purposes through legal or other effective means. The geodatabase includes: 1) Geographic boundaries of public land ownership and voluntarily provided private conservation lands (e.g., Nature Conservancy Preserves); 2) The combination land owner, land manager, management...

The Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative is a long-term science-based effort to ensure southwestern Wyoming’s wildlife and habitat remain viable in areas facing development pressure. Wyoming encompasses some of the highest quality wildlife habitats in the Intermountain West. At the same time, this region is an important source of natural gas. It is critically important to apply a geologic understanding of emerging patterns of energy resource exploitation, to identify the most likely geographic domains of future impact. Using Geographic Information System technology, energy data pertinent to the conservation decision-making process have been assembled to illustrate the temporal evolution of oil and gas production...

Changes to the coastline and to coastal features, such as spits, barrier islands, estuaries, tidal guts and lagoons were mapped for over 22,000 km of coastline along the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska coasts in western Alaska. Changes to rivers and lakes near the coast were also captured. The analysis was based on time-series analysis of Landsat imagery, 1972–2013. An annual time-series of suitable Landsat imagery was compiled and analyzed for changes in near-infrared reflectance to identify areas that transitioned from land to water, or vice-versa, over the study period. The timing of changes was also identified. Thousands of coastal changes over the 42-year study period exceeded the 60-m pixel resolution of the...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has compiled and reported data about the volumes of water used in homes, businesses, industries, and on farms within the United States since 1950. This report contains a compilation of fresh groundwater withdrawal data for the year 2000 for irrigation, public-supply and self-supplied industrial water uses from principal aquifers within the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Data for this report were collected concurrently with the data that are presented in the report “Estimated Use of Water in the United States in 2000” (Hutson and others, 2004). The USGS, in cooperation with State and local agencies, compiled water-use estimates for 2000 for each county in...

The Susquehanna River Basin (SRBC) launched a multi-year water use and availability study in 2013 covering the entire Susquehanna basin and considering all types of water uses. This study builds on SRBC’s previous water use assessment efforts, including the 1980s low flow management framework plans, the 1996 Susquehanna River Basin Water Management Reconnaissance Study, the 2008 Consumptive Use Mitigation Plan, and the volume of water use data SRBC has amassed over the past 40 years. Specifically, SRBC has developed an approach to comprehensively evaluate the potential cumulative impact of consumptive water use within the Susquehanna basin. SRBC has compiled existing and projected water use data, quantify consumptive...
