Aquatic Resource Area Survey Point

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"


This data set is a point coverage that can be used to indentify the physical characteristics and fish species that pertain to one survey location on a waterbody (lake, river, or stream). Each survey is characterized by a single point location with associated attributes, and may be representative of a portion of a water body or an entire waterbody (lake, river, or stream).

The information in Aquatic Resource Area (ARA) Survey Point is used to update the ARA Summary layer. Every ARA Survey Point must be associated with an ARA Summary record. The ARA Summary and ARA Survey Point layers are linked through the use of the 'ARA Identifier' attribute. ARA Summary is available for download from the Portal via the following record:

  • Aquatic Resource Area Summary
  • Supplementary tables can be used and are available for download from the additional documentation section.
