Document Links:
Links are provided from each heading in the document table of contents to the appropriate section of the document-and back to the table of contents.   Within the body of the document links are generally noted by the use of bold italic text. These links will take the reader to charts or tables with additional information. Links to each of the map displays are also provided from the table of contents. All links to the tables listed in the table of contents are linked back to the table of contents via the 'Table #' heading on the table itself. Selecting the table title bar will link the reader back to the location in the document referencing the table.

Links provided on each map display are also organized consistently. The title 'Yellowstone River Physical Feature Inventory' on each map will link the user back to the beginning of the document. A link back to the document table of contents is available from the Segment # description just below the title on each map. From the 'Summary of Features' box a link is provided to a tabular listing and numerical summary of the line and point features in each river segment.

The 'Description of Segment #' box on each map will take the reader to the location in the document that describes the general features associated with the selected river segment.

Map displays also contain links to photographs. These are indicated by magenta boxes surrounding a photo number. By clicking within the magenta box the reader will be linked to a photograph associated with the features observed at that point along the river. After viewing the photograph the reader can return to the map display by clicking within the black box surrounding the 'Segment #' at the bottom of the photograph. By clicking within the black box surrounding the description at the top of the photograph the reader will link back to a listing of all photographs included. This document and its contents have been formatted with the purpose of providing this information to the greatest number of interested parties in the most accessible fashion possible.
