I am looking for a shapefile of stream/river depth for the contiguous United States for my GIS project. NHD does not provide depth information. Could you please recommend me any suggestions?

  • you mean bathymetry/contours data? – albert Jan 23 '17 at 7:08
  • No, I mean the shapefile which tells the depth of the river in different section of the river. I do not think the contour data would help to tell any info about rivers – Ben Jan 24 '17 at 2:37
  • ben, i'm not 100%, but pretty sure what you seek is here. posting as comment since i don't know 100% what you want...if the data is here, it is not in one shapefile; you're going to have to cobble one together from multiple sources of depth data here. water.usgs.gov/lookup/getgislist – albert Jan 25 '17 at 4:12

    Thanks Albert for the info. I think, I need more than one sources for the depth data. Lets see how far I can go and it makes it difficult for me because I need that information for rivers in different parts of the United States. – Ben Jan 25 '17 at 17:02
  • Did you end up having luck cobbling from USGS? – JeopardyTempest Oct 26 '18 at 23:48
