Cross Section Viewer

Whole River Distances

The cross section viewer maintains a list of whole river mile locations on the Missouri River. These locations are only used in the map viewer and are not part of any cross section viewer analysis tool.

To view coordinates of whole river miles (i.e. 1, 2, 3 ….), select Data then Whole River distances. A grid appears showing the latitude and longitude (in decimal degrees) for each of the whole river miles on the Missouri River. These values are not editable within the Cross Section Viewer software and can only be adjusted by opening the underlying database using Microsoft Access.
