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.
