rescale_measures: Rescale reachcode measure to comid flowline measure.

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

Description

Given a reachcode measure and the from and to measure for a comid flowline, returns the measure along the comid flowline. This is a utility specific to the NHDPlus data model where many comid flowlines make up a single reachcode / reach. "Measures" are typically referenced to reaches. Flowlines have a stated from-measure / to-measure. In some cases it is useful to rescale the measure such that it is relative only to the flowline.

from is downstream – 0 is the outlet to is upstream – 100 is the inlet
