HydroGIS is a web map service provided by the ORNL NHAAP team that allows users to explore and download various water power-related geographic information such as hydropower technology, infrastructure, and license information, as well as potential environmental concerns and other landscape characteristics relevant to aid in a wide range of critical water resource, energy, and environmental decisions. Several major water-energy data sources are used to provide regular updates to the HydroGIS map service.
Note: HydroGIS allows users to download data in tabular form only because of existing privacy agreements with our collaborators and data source providers. However, NHAAP does provide publicly available geographic data for download in shapefile format from select NHAAP resource assessments and data integration efforts on a provisional basis.
