STARS: Spatial tools for the analysis of river systems – A tutorial

This document has been written as a "recipe book" to help users use the STARS tools to generate the data required for spatial stream-network modelling (Peterson and Ver Hoef 2010; Ver Hoef and Peterson, 2010). An example dataset is available on the SSN & STARS website
(http://www.fs.fed.us/rm/boise/AWAE/projects/SSN_STARS/software_data.html) and is referred to throughout this tutorial. There are also additional resources that may be useful, such as the FLoWS user manual (Theobald et al., 2006), the ArcGIS help pages, and the ESRI User
Forums (http://forums.arcgis.com/). The last two references will not provide specific information about the STARS toolset, but may provide help with more general ArcGIS tasks.
