Lesson 54: Creating Hydrologic Maps

Hydrologic Maps depicting the distribution of water on the earth’s surface, characterizing the regime of bodies of water, and making it possible to evaluate the water resources of individual land areas. Hydrologic maps include maps of river networks and their density and lake content, runoff maps, and maps of sources that feed bodies of water, glacier regime, water turbidity in rivers, and the mineralization and chemical composition of natural waters. In addition, hydrologic maps may show characteristic phenomena such as desiccation, freezing, and floods. In the video below we go through how to get available hydrological data for any part of the world and customize to our area of interest.
