|Description||The surficial geology, wetlands, and deepwater habitats of the Coeur d' Alene River Valley, Idaho were mapped by Arthur A. Bookstrom and Stephen E. Box (1996-1998) onto 1:24,000 scale topographic base maps (stable-base greenline mylars) for input into an|

The Coeur d'Alene GIS includes four geospatial datasets: cdasurf, cdahydro, cdanest, and cdapump. The primary dataset, cdasurf, consists of an arc attribute table, cdasurf.aat, that relates to the cdasurf.con (contact) and cdasurf.bnk (banktype) files; and a polygon attribute table, cdasurf.pat, that relates to the cdasurf.map (detailed geologic and wetlands map units), cdasurf.sys (wetland system), cdasurf.cls (wetland class), cdasurf.scl (wetland subclass), cdasurf.fpl(floodplain designation), cdasurf.wtr (water regime), cdasurf.sed (lithology), cdasurf.rdx (oxidation/reduction environment), cdasurf.ph (pH status), cdasurf.agl (agricultural land) files. The cdahydro dataset consists of an arc attribute table, cdahydro.aat, that relates to the cdahydro.sym (hydrologic features) file. The cdanest dataset consists of an arc attribute table, cdanest.aat (canals and moats surrounding waterfowl nesting mounds), and a polygon attribute table, cdanest.pat (waterfowl nesting mounds). The cdapump dataset consists of a point attribute table, cdapump.pat (surfacewater pumping stations).
