Hydro Basemap Gone GLOBAL

by Caitlin Scopel, Cartographic Product Engineer, Esri

World Hydro BasemapThe Hydro Basemap is now the  WORLD Hydro Basemap.  The World Hydro Basemap uses the same design as its predecessor, but extends the coverage to the World at scales of 1:147 million to 1:2.3 million.  The World Hydro Basemap includes the map tiles from the original Hydro Basemap, providing coverage of the United States down to the 1:18,000 scale.

The World Hydro Basemap is comprised of two map service layers: the World Terrain Base, and the World Hydro Reference Overlay.  The World Terrain Base provides the elevation context necessary to understand why the world’s surface water flows where it does.

The World Hydro Reference Overlay provides the streams, waterbodies, drainage areas, and cultural reference information necessary to make the World Hydro Basemap useful for scientists, professionals and researchers in the fields of Hydrology, Geography, Climate, Soils, and other natural sciences related to water.
