Developing an Interactive GIS Tool for Stream Classification in Northeast Puerto Rico

Project Description: 

This project aimed to answer basic environmental questions about a tropical montane ecosystem. Two models were created to classify streams flowing within the study area based on specific environmental parameters used as inputs. The output of each model is a derived vector stream network, which has as data within the attribute table the identification of each parameter, given as inputs, on a per stream reach basis. The input parameters used for each model were a bedrock lithology layer and a vegetation layer.
