Get Streamorder

Description

Applies a topological sort and calculates strahler stream order. Algorithm: If more than one upstream flowpath has an order equal to the maximum upstream order then the downstream flowpath is assigned the maximum upstream order plus one. Otherwise it is assigned the max upstream order.

Usage

get_streamorder(x, status = TRUE)

Arguments

x

data.frame with dendritic ID and toID columns.

status

logical show progress update messages?

Value

numeric stream order in same order as input

Examples

source(system.file("extdata", "walker_data.R", package = "nhdplusTools"))

test_flowline <- prepare_nhdplus(walker_flowline, 0, 0, FALSE)

test_flowline <- data.frame(
  ID = test_flowline$COMID,
  toID = test_flowline$toCOMID)

(order <- get_streamorder(test_flowline))

walker_flowline$order <- order

plot(sf::st_geometry(walker_flowline), lwd = walker_flowline$order, col = "blue")
