Freshwater Atlas of BC

The Freshwater Atlas (FWA) is a standardized dataset for mapping the province's hydrological features. The atlas defines watershed boundaries by height of land and provides a connected network of streams, lakes and wetlands. Each stream in the province has its own watershed (the land drained by that stream) but it is also linked to the other streams and watersheds around it.
