Drainage Basins

Roads: Identification Information

Originator:

EROS Data Center

Date:

unknown

Title:

HYDRO 1K Elevation Derivative Database

Purpose:

The Hydro1k Drainage Basins are a general purpose global database designed to support
Geographic Information Systems applications.

Abstract:

The drainage basins distributed with the HYDRO1k data set suite are derived using the vector stream networks along with the flow direction data set. Each polygon in the basin data set has been tagged with a Pfafstetter code uniquely identifying each sub-basin. A detailed description of the coding scheme can be found in Verdin. Additional attributes defining the characteristics of each sub-basin have been developed. These are described in the Readme file. These data are available in an ARC/INFO export format..
