Dataset Abstract:

The Upper Acre River Basin, a tri-national basin located at the frontier of Bolivia, Brazil and Peru with an area of 7600 square kilometers is one of the few tri-national basins in Brazil and can be seen as an example in micro-scale of the function of a basin shared by territories of different countries. The integrated management of this basin depends on, among other things, sharing compatible data from three countries. To contribute to the integrated management of this basin, topography data was generated by the Sector of Land Use and Global Change Studies at the Federal University of Acre. This data set contains elevation (m) and slope (%) images in tif format based on the Brazilian Association of Soil Science classification. We used DEM/SRTM from 2000 image, with UTM WGS 84 projection and IDRISI 32 software. The Data Set contain also files in *.*txt for elevation values and areas in square kilometes for each class for slope classes. Data Quality Statement: The Data Center has determined that this data set has missing or incomplete data, metadata, or other documentation resulting in diminished usability of this product. User beware. Known problems: Much of the documentation provided, file names and file content are in Portuguese.
