Aqua Monitor Surface Land Gain (1985-2016)

The Deltares Aqua Monitor is an open tool that detects land and water conversions globally, during the last 30 years at 30m resolution. Results of the Aqua Monitor only show compound impacts of natural and human change or variability but does not look into water and sediment budgets which would be required to determine the causes of these changes. Static maps have been exported from the tool which displays accumulative land and water changes between 1985-2016. For further detail on the methodology see Nature Climate Change paper: http://nature.com/nclimate/journal/v6/n9/full/nclimate3111.html.

Global Surface Water Mask

The 250m water mask product utilizes the SWBD (SRTM Water Body Data) and complement it with information from 250m MODIS data to create a complete representation of global surface water. The original intent of this product is not for hydrologic modeling, rather for masking water in products.

Greater Mekong Subregion hydropower dams (2016)

This dataset contains all known hydropower developments across the Greater Mekong Subregion although is not a complete dataset. It includes original data collected by Open Development Cambodia and Open Development Vietnam as well as sources from International Rivers and the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Challenge Program on Water and Food - Mekong.

Global Food Security Product

The Global Food Security­ support Analysis Data Product provides spatial distribution of a disaggregated five class global cropland extent map derived at nominal 1­km based on four major studies: Thenkabail et al. (2009a, 2011), Pittman et al. (2010), Yu et al. (2013), and Friedl et al. (2010). This data represents Irrigated versus rainfed areas across the Lower Mekong Region.

Hydro basins level 6: Mekong

Hydro-basins provide hydrographic data layers that allow for the derivation of watershed boundaries for any given location based on the near-global, high-resolution SRTM digital elevation model. Watersheds were delineated in a consistent manner at different scales, and a hierarchical sub-basin breakdown was created following the topological concept of the Pfafstetter coding system (Verdin & Verdin 1999). The resulting polygon layers are termed HydroBASINS and represent a subset of the HydroSHEDS database. There are 12 levels. Level 6 represents major river systems from headwaters to coast. This version is sourced from FAO.
