This GIS tool covers all of the counties of Greene, Fluvanna, and Albemarle (thus all of the Rivanna watershed) and the City of Charlottesville, thus all of the Rivanna watershed. The map was developed by Worldview Solutions, Inc. with funding from local partners: the Counties of Albemarle and Fluvanna, The Nature Conservancy of Virginia, StreamWatch, and the Rivanna River Basin Commission, with The Nature Conservancy providing overall project management and coordination.
The map product shows impervious features identified from 2009 aerial photography with a 1-foot resolution. Additional land use/cover classifications are hydrological features, deciduous tree cover, evergreen tree cover, open land, pine plantation (from evergreen tree cover), forest harvest, orchard/vineyard, bare earth and golf courses (from open land).
This interactive site documents stream conditions at 32 sites in the Rivanna watershed and can be used to better understand the StreamWatch report, "Biological Conditions at StreamWatch Long-term Monitoring Sites - Summer 2006 through Spring 2009."
