Major River Basins of the World (GRDC, 2007)

The Major River Basins of the World is an ongoing GIS project of the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) that aims at the provision of a set of shape files for the use with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This dataset was created for the generation of GRDC map products and will be updated from time to time whenever extensions are required by future GRDC projects. At present the dataset comprises the GIS layer of 405 river basins and 687 associated rivers.

Watershed Boundaries of GRDC Stations (GRDC, 2011)

Modern GIS technology allows for the delineation of basins for almost every point on the Earth’s surface. Against this background, GRDC is repeatedly asked for the provision of watershed boundaries for the gauging stations represented in the Global Runoff Data Base. The watershed boundaries of more than 7000 GRDC stations were generated using the HydroSHEDS drainage network.

WMO Regions and Subregions (GRDC, 2004)

The meteorological and related activities within WMO are coordinated by the WMO Regional Associations (RAs), composed of the WMO-Members from the respective regions of the world. The WMO regions basically coincide with the outlines of the continents. The current status of the RAs is published quarterly in WMO Publication No. 5: Composition of WMO.
