Maps and spatial data


Global maps by theme in PDF format

While the "Global interactive maps by theme" further below are dynamically linked to the AQUASTAT Main Database and therefore contain the latest data available in the database, at users' requests global maps have also been prepared in PDF format so that they can be easily used for presentations and publications. However, they are based on the data that were available in the Main Database at the moment of their preparation. Clicking on the "Go to database" button below the PDF gives the latest data available in the Main Database for the variable concerned, which for some countries may be more recent and thus different from the data used at the time of the preparation of the map. For all most recent data and time series, if available, please go to the Main Database.

Click on the name of the variable to open the map in PDF format. Click on the icon to the right to get the latest data available in the Main Database.

  Map in PDF format Data
   
Population density


Long-term average annual precipitation


Contribution of transboundary water to the total renewable water resources


Total renewable water resources per inhabitant


Proportion of water resources withdrawn: Pressure on water resources


Proportion of total water withdrawal withdrawn for agriculture


Proportion of renewable water resources withdrawn for agriculture


Water withdrawal per inhabitant


Area equipped for irrigation


Part of cultivated area under irrigation


In addition to the above global maps by theme, AQUASTAT has prepared a chart showing global sectoral water withdrawal from 1900 to 2010.

  Global water withdrawal over time



Global interactive maps by theme

These maps are dynamically linked to data held in the AQUASTAT Main Database through a collaboration with data.fao.org. Click on the globes below to visit the maps:

  Total renewable water resources per inhabitant
  Proportion of water resources withdrawn: Pressure on water resources
  Proportion of total water withdrawal withdrawn for agriculture
  Agricultural water withdrawal as % of total renewable water resources
  Total water withdrawal per capita
  Area equipped for full control irrigation
  Part of cultivated area under irrigation

Downloadable maps

This section contains several downloadable spatial datasets. These digital datalayers are being used by FAO for regional, continental and global spatial analyses related to the field of water resources and irrigation.


Maps in GeoNetwork: GeoNetwork is an opensource depository that allows users to share geographically referenced thematic information between different organizations.
Downloadable maps: Maps of hydrological basins and rivers, downloadable in .png format.
Basins, rivers and dams in Google Earth: A google .kml file, suitable for viewing basins, rivers and dams in Google Earth. Click on each point for information about each dam.
