[Descripción] 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 & 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). Products are:

  • Void-filled elevation (DEM), raster, spatial resolution: 3 sec, 15 sec, 30 sec.
  • Hydrologically conditioned elevation (CON), raster, 3 sec.
  • Drainage directions (DIR), raster, 3 sec, 15 sec, 30 sec.
  • Flow accumulation (ACC), raster, 15 sec, 30 sec.
  • River network (RIV), vector, 15 sec, 30 sec.
  • Drainage basins (BAS), vector, 15 sec, 30 sec.
  • HydroBASINS, vector, 15 sec.
  • GloRiC: hydrologic, physio-climatic, and geomorphic sub-classification, as well as a combined type for every river reach, resulting in a total of 127 river reach types.
  • HydroATLAS: comprehensive database gathering and presenting a wide range of hydro-environmental attributes from existing global datasets in a consistent and organized manner.
