: August 2010 - June 2011
The project consists mostly of updating the watershed basin maps produced in 2007 by GRID-Geneva for the UNECE's First Assessment of Transboundary Rivers, Lakes and Groundwaters by adding information related to land cover, population and water. Although some of this information will appear on the maps, it will mainly be shown on a series of graphs. Maps for additional transboundary rivers and lakes will be created and added to the existing set.
The project has four distinct components mentioned below:
- GIS component to extract, manipulate and analyze the data.
- Programming component to automate some tasks.
- Cartographic component to update existing maps and create new ones.
- Graphic design component to produce the graphs.
