The veins of America: Stunning map

The veins of America: Stunning map shows every river basin in the US 

  • The map shows the network of streams and rivers in the 48 contiguous states of the US

  • The largest, shown in pink, reveals basins for the Mississippi, Missouri, and Arkansas rivers

  • Other basins, including Pacific Northwest, Upper and Lower Colorado, and Great Lakes are shown

A stunning new map shows the complex network of rivers and streams in the contiguous United States.
Created by Imgur user Fejetlenfej, a geographer and GIS analyst with a ‘lifelong passion for beautiful maps,’ it highlights the massive expanse of river basins across the country – in particular, those which feed the Mississippi River.
The map visualizes Strahler Stream Order Classification, the creator explains, with higher stream orders indicated as thicker lines. 

I recommend you go to the link a lot more to see. sunny
