Abstract:
The Land Use Project has been involved in a WWF-led initiative to map global rivers and watersheds, called HydroSHEDS. This data is now being released for Latin America, with Asia and Africa to follow shortly, providing unrivaled information on the hydrology of the earth. HydroSHEDS uses high-resolution topographic data to model flow directions and flow accumulations, resulting in detailed data on river networks and catchment boundaries. The CIAT Land Use Project provided the project with its hole-filled SRTM topographic data. The release of HydroSHEDS will give researchers and watershed managers detailed data and maps on catchments for any given region. When coupled with hydrological models, this will permit an intimate understanding of the hydrological processes occurring within regions. Ultimately, it is hoped that the use of HydroSHEDS will contribute to improved management and conservation of water resources and aquatic ecosystems.
