Streamer in the News
The National Atlas released a new interactive web map called Streamer in July 2013. With Streamer, you can explore America's streams by tracing upstream to their source or downstream to where they empty. Learn more about your stream traces and the places they pass through in brief or detailed reports. Here is what people are saying about Streamer.
Here are some selected tweets from around the Twitterverse. More tweets at: https://twitter.com/search/realtime?q=nationalatlas.gov%2Fstreamer%2F&src=typd

"For people without a fancy geography system, this is a phenomenal way to report statistics and details at the watershed level."
"A new interactive watershed map shows all the upstream and downstream connections
of all US waters. If you're a paddler/map geek, this is VERY COOL!"
"That is really an amazing chart. I had no idea of the origins and ending points of the streams and small rivers I drive over every day. Kind of fascinating to zoom in and see."
"Thanks for sharing this great find! I found the "Trace Report" button lists (in the detailed report) all the names of the rivers/streams along the way, and also the counties through which it flows! This will help me trace the route of my ancestors in 1866 from northwest N.C. to Ohio. They may have traveled on the New River."
