Welcome to my comparative study of the Rouge and Huron Watersheds. Click on either watershed to the left to see a more detailed version of each watershed. From here you will be able to click on parts of each watershed that will take you to GIS maps dealing with comparisons of populations, impervious surfaces, and land use differences betwen these two watersheds.
I was interested in comapring several different aspects of these two watersheds using a few different parameters. Included in following maps you will find comparisons of the watersheds by population, surface area of impervious surfaces, and the differences in land use. I realized that this would be a valuable tool since in researching and collecting data for the Rouge and Huron Watersheds I never came across and information that compared these two watersheds directly. Hopefully the research I have done and this project will help us maintain and improve the quality of these watersheds.
