High-Resolution Georeferenced Major Rivers Point Data, Spaced in 150m intervals

November 8, 2019

The Global River Points dataset is a high-resolution vector file geodatabase of 73 rivers world-wide. Each river is represented by a series of points spaced 150 meters apart and each point has attached environmental attributes extracted from multiple data sets. The attributes include physical information (slope, elevation, temperature, precipitation, river width and discharge) and landscape variables (human influence, fishing pressure, and organic load). The dataset also incorporates the river classification data from the Global River Reach Classifications GloRiC Version 1.0 dataset.
