Map and infobox[edit]

I've been thinking of making maps for the Tulare Basin rivers for a while, and finally got around to trying one. I figured I'd start with the southernmost, the Kern River. Due to the strange nature of the Tulare Basin's hydrography, along with the major diversions and irrigation canals, dry lakes, etc, the map is challenging. Let me know if it has mistakes or is confusing or could be improved in whatever way. On the map and in the infobox I made the Kern's mouth be Buena Vista Lake Bed, even if little or no water actually reaches this mouth. My main reason is that this is the mouth coordinates and name given by the USGS. But I am not an expert on the hydrography of the southern Central Valley, so if there is a better way to map this river let me know! Thanks. I'll try to get around to fleshing out the infobox a little and perhaps adding to the main text and working on the many redlinks. I'll also try to add the Kern's watershed to the map, and maybe California county lines, unless they just result in too much map clutter. Pfly (talk) 23:27, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

  • So far so good! By the way, the river has been all lovely and full this last few weeks -- it's already been higher than it was all last year. --jpgordon∇∆∇∆ 03:09, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
