    Michigan TU has been working for several years on a stream mapping program. Some rivers are done. Foot by foot, the width and depth of the river is logged by GPS. Streamside vegatation as well. Cover, or the absence of cover is noted. Etc. Great article by contacting Kristen Thomas at Michigan TU.
