Global Reservoir and Dam Database, Version 1 (GRanDv1): Reservoirs, Revision 01

Metadata Updated: March 23, 2019

The Global Reservoir and Dam Database, Version 1, Revision 01 (v1.01) contains 6,862 records of reservoirs and their associated dams with a cumulative storage capacity of 6,197 cubic km. The reservoirs were delineated from high spatial resolution satellite imagery and are available as polygon shapefiles. The only attribute for the reservoirs is the area of the reservoir. The associated dams data set includes multiple attributes such as name of the dam and the impounded river, primary use, nearest city, area, and year of construction (or commissioning). While the main focus was to include all reservoirs with a storage capacity of more than 0.1 cubic kilometers, many smaller reservoirs were added where data were available. The data were compiled by Lehner et al. (2011) and are distributed by the Global Water System Project (GWSP) and by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN). For details please refer to the Technical Documentation which is provided with the data.
