Project Description: The purpose of the Corpus Christi-Nueces Observation Network project is to design and implement a geographic information system for observing the stream flow within the Nueces Watershed. The system provides a near-real-time graqhic display of streams located within the Nueces Watershed and establishes the south Texas Natural Resource Geographic database. In addition, the system has designed and implemented an interface between the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Web site data and the supportive layers of the South Texas Natural Resource Geographic database. The Corpus Christi-Nueces River Observation Network(CC-NRON) provides and maintains data so that the following are available within the Nueces River boundaries on a daily basis: Watershed with major streams and stream gages, Temporal stream flows, Stream gage hydorgrphs.
