HydroSHEDS : The Hydrological data and maps based on SHuttle Elevation Derivatives at multiple Scales.
Entry ID: WWF_HS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: HydroSHEDS is a mapping product that provides hydrographic information for
regional and global-scale applications in a consistent format. It offers a
suite of geo-referenced data sets (vector and raster) at various scales,
including river networks, watershed boundaries, drainage directions, and flow
accumulations. HydroSHEDS is based on high-resolution elevation data obtained
during a Space Shuttle flight for NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission
(SRTM) (Source: HydroSHEDS).
