Stream Routes with Kittle Numbers and Mile Measures: Minnesota

This is a feature class of measured stream routes and is a core feature class within the DNR Hydrography DatasetA "route" is an ESRI linear feature type created through a process called Dynamic Segmentation. Each stream route is labeled with a unique stream ID (i.e., DNR Fisheries Kittle Number) and has mile measures extending from the stream mouth (FROM_MEAS, mile=0) to headwaters (TO_MEAS, mile=total stream length). DNR Kittle Numbers follow a drainage-branching format (e.g., X-000-000-000...) and are assigned to all Fisheries-managed streams (see attribute field [VALID] = 'Y'). Additional streams have been labeled with "dummy" kittle numbers in order to provide a unique ID (VALID = 'N').For more information about the DNR Kittle Number stream identification system, see the Fisheries Stream Survey Manual - DNR Special Report #165 Appendix 3 - page 234 (or page 251 in Adobe PDF Reader) at:
