This EnviroAtlas dataset is a digital hydrologic unit (HUC) boundary layer to the Subwatershed (12-digit) 6th level for Puerto Rico, based on the May 2016 NHDPlus V2.1 WBD (Watershed Boundary Dataset) Snapshot for Puerto Rico & U.S. Virgin Islands. Information on the percent land area has been added, and HUCs for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have been split into two separate files. The location of one HUC (a small island) has been adjusted to align with aerial imagery and GAP (Gap Analysis Program) land cover data. This dataset was produced by the US EPA to support research and online mapping activities related to EnviroAtlas. EnviroAtlas (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas) allows the user to interact with a web-based, easy-to-use, mapping application to view and analyze multiple ecosystem services for the contiguous United States. The dataset is available as downloadable data (https://edg.epa.gov/data/Public/ORD/EnviroAtlas) or as an EnviroAtlas map service. Additional descriptive information about each attribute in this dataset can be found in its associated EnviroAtlas Fact Sheet (https://www.epa.gov/enviroatlas/enviroatlas-fact-sheets).
