Examples

library(sf)
source(system.file("extdata", "sample_flines.R", package = "nhdplusTools"))
plot(sample_flines$geom)
start_COMID <- 11690196
UT_COMIDs <- get_UT(sample_flines, start_COMID)
plot(dplyr::filter(sample_flines, COMID %in% UT_COMIDs)$geom,
     col = "red", add = TRUE)

UT_COMIDs <- get_UT(sample_flines, start_COMID, distance = 50)
plot(dplyr::filter(sample_flines, COMID %in% UT_COMIDs)$geom,
     col = "blue", add = TRUE)
