The watershed locator is a web-based tool that allows a user to investigate watersheds. In particular it:
* Provides access to multiple levels of watersheds for the Northwestern U.S. and British Columbia allowing the user to visualize a location within a watershed.
* Allows user to move between watershed levels letting the user visualize how multiple watersheds together form larger watersheds.
* Provides access to additional layers such as stream networks.
The project utilizes the following open source projects: OpenLayers, Mapserver, Prototype and PostGIS.
Only the client code is available in the repository. The data used will be made available through http://www.inforain.org along with a working version of the watershed locator.
