In research or applied study projects related to watersheds, stream network data layers are one of the

most important data used to calculate the parameters such as watershed physical parameters, runoff, sediment,

erosion and etc. These digital spatial data layers prepared in different formats and scales often have

deficiencies in their topology structures such as the disconnection of stream networks and inaccurate coincidence

of watershed flow direction pattern with digital direction of the streams. These deficiencies create

many problems in calculating watershed parameters whereas built-in facilities in current GIS softwares

also have basic restrictions in resolving them. In the present research, in the GIS environment, a new model

has been designed and developed to solve the GIS softwares problems in creating artificial stream networks

(from point of view of the numbers and position of streams and also threshold definition). In addition to

this, the developed model is capable of converting disconnected stream networks to connected ones. The

number and position of new created streams are equal to their original hydrographic networks and water

flow direction has been corrected based on watershed flow direction pattern. The extracted statistics results

of the research show high accuracy of the model outputs.
