This national rivers dataset is a route feature class rather than a simple polyline. The geometry is generated by merging the river lines of individual geometric network datasets.

Provenance information The geometry of the rivers were originally generated based on the OSi 50k raster mapping, but has been updated over time as updated information has arisen from local surveys. The associated attribute data comes from a variety of sources, e.g. waterbody codes from the individual waterbody datasets. River orders are generated automatically through EPA tools using the Strahler method.
