Frequently-asked questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title:
wetlands, water nfrastructure

Abstract:
Water infrastructure, wetlands map 1:1000000 scale. Created WWF , Amur Branch.





The project shows distribution of wetlands (lakes, rivers, mires, fens, solonchaks) 

and their relation with forest cover, quarternary deposits, major cropland areas. 

Also the project contains data on existing and planned dams and water transfers.

How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?

    Scale all using layers  from 1:1000000 to 1:3000000

  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?
