This resource includes three hydrographic geospatial datasets for South Asia including: Rivers, Watersheds, and Basin area. These datasets were developed at Brigham Young University by using standard terrain analysis tool in ArcGIS to extract features from digital elevation model data provided by Esri. The datasets were created for the purpose of supporting GEOGLOWS ( forecasting using ECMWF ( ensemble weather/hydrologic model and the RAPID river routing model ( These datasets are provided free of charge for use for any purpose. If you use these data, please reference this HydroShare resource using the information provided in "How to Cite" at the bottom of this HydroShare landing page.
