Research by Year
Official Surveys from 1900 to 1939
This page provides links to the official government survey maps of the Sacramento River and the San Joaquin River, in the Delta region of California.  The surveys conducted from 1906 to 1908 are important because they are very detailed, and include detailed cross sections of the larger islands of the Delta that are adjacent to the rivers surveyed.  Note that Steamboat Slough is also surveyed, as it was considered and original section of the Sacramento River according to all historical surveys and descriptions.  This is important to note because unaware scientists or researchers who don't take the time to look at historical documents may end up publishing false data about the Delta, using modern maps that errase the original waterways of the Delta.  For examples, see the "Wrong Maps of the Delta" pages and reports.

Also included are survey maps regarding soils types and land uses from 1900 to 1939.  During this time period roads in the Delta were being paved, bridges built to replace ferrys, levees were being improved and little fishing villages and farmers landings began to transition to recreation and boating facilities.  Ida's Isle became Vierra's, Martin's Island became a peninsula known as Snug Harbor, facilities like Korth's Pirates Lair and B&W attracted fishing and boating enthusiasts to different areas of the Delta.
