Abstract

This map report shows the 27 major drainage basins, locations of the 71 permanent stream- gaging stations, and the primary rivers, lakes, and reservoirs of Massachusetts. These features are presented at a scale of 1:400,000 (map size about 36 by 24 inches). The map also lists uses of streamflow data. The map was produced from a digital data base using a Geographic Information System (GIS). It shows information about the stream-gaging stations that can be accessed from the digital data base--stream-gaging station number and name, telemetry code, and cooperating agency. By use of GIS and the major basin divides from the data base, additional data bases could be grouped to produce other hydrologic planning maps. The drainage divides were digitized from paper maps into the GIS at a scale of 1:24,000. The map was compiled from original maps that was produced by the USGS in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Environment Management.
