Topographical catchment areas of Swiss waterbodies: Area outlets

The "Area outlets" data set is part of the "Topographical catchment areas of Swiss waterbodies" geodata set. It consists of point objects that represent the area outlets for a possible total of some 22,000 combined catchment areas. The geodata set comprises a range of pre-calculated key data on soil use and physical geography for the combined catchment area, as well as the modelled, mean annual and monthly discharge. Area outlets are those places in the waterbodies for which this key data was calculated. Some of the key data can be seen on the FOEN and COGIS GIS internet portals. More information can be found in the freely available "Swiss catchment area structure" (EZGG-CH) product.
