This GeoJSON dataset contains information about 10780 waterfall and 1080 rapid locations (referred to as falls throughout the metadata) and characteristics (e.g. type and height) for the conterminous United States. This dataset centralizes known information about falls while providing basic quality control (i.e. resolving duplicate records and spatial accuracy checks) and linkages to stream networks intended to facilitate stream network analyses. Locations of falls were sourced from the World Waterfall Database (WWD, www.worldwaterfalldatabase.com), the US Forest Service Center for Aquatic Technology Transfer (acquired from Southeast Aquatic Barrier Inventory), and Geographic Names Information System (GNIS, https://geonames.usgs.gov)....

A new and more complete version of this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5066/P9QQTKA0. This dataset contains information about waterfall location and characteristics. It also provides a linear reference to two National Hydrography Datasets. This dataset is based off the World Waterfall Database (WWD) and other source datasets. The coordinates and spatial attributes from the WWD were used to help verify locations in Google Earth. From there, the USGS HydroLink Tool was used to link data to both the NHDPlusV2.1 (1:100,000 scale) and NHD High Resolution Dataset (1:24,000 scale). This dataset currently includes waterfalls from the states of Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri....
