WIN, the Watershed Information Network, provides a modernized centralized environmental data management platform (excluding regulatory databases) as a successor to Florida STORET (STOrage and RETrieval).
The Florida NHD is a comprehensive set of digital spatial data that represents the surface water of the United States using common features such as lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, canals, stream gages and dams. Polygons are used to represent areal features such as lakes, ponds and rivers; lines are used to represent linear features such as streams, canals and smaller rivers; while points are used to represent point features such as stream gages and dams.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
