HYDRO1k Elevation Derivative Database (USGS)

HYDRO1k is a geographic database developed to provide comprehensive and consistent global coverage of topographically derived data sets, including streams, drainage basins and ancillary layers derived from the USGS' 30 arc-second digital elevation model of the world (GTOPO30). HYDRO1k provides a suite of geo-referenced data sets, both raster and vector, which will be of value for all users who need to organize, evaluate, or process hydrologic information on a continental scale. These data are freely available via FTP from the USGS... enjoy! http://edc.usgs.gov/products/elevation/gtopo30/hydro/index.html
