The PDF reference of HydroLakes mentions that the attribute table of the
HydroLAKES_polysv10 shows the
Wshd_area field for the watershed area at the pour point of the lake i.e. area drained by the lake.
However, there are entries which have very small value for lake area (or dimensions) but have very large values for
area. (e.g. Hylak_id 1081778)
My questions to the developers and the community:
- What should the user understand from this?
- Are there any suggestion on working with HydroLAKES with meaningful
Thanks in advance
