Abstract:
GTOPO30 Water Bodies (North East, one of six data sets) represents the lakes, rivers, and ocean areas within the non-SRTM coverage area (north of 60 degrees North and south of 56 degrees South latitude) of the world. These water bodies were used to help insure flow direction and to set a constant value for elevation values within these features.
Purpose:
GTOPO30 Water Bodies provides a water body data set for non-SRTM coverage areas.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following steps were performed by ESRI: Created NoData ESRI Grids from the Global Digital Elevation Model (GTOPO30) ESRI Grid where ocean areas are represented by NoData. There were six regional NoData ESRI Grids created (North West, South West, North Central, South Central, North East, and South East) whose extents match the six GTOPO30 regional elevation ESRI Grids. Extracted pixels whose value equals 1 from each of the six NoData ESRI Grids. Converted the ESRI Grids where all pixels values are 1 to feature classes, thereby creating feature classes containing ocean areas. Added the attributes FACC_CODE and FACC_DESC to the ocean area feature classes. For all features, calculated FACC_CODE = "BA040" and FACC_DESC = "Water (Except Inland)". Deleted the unneeded attributes ID and GRID_CODE. Intersected the ocean area feature classes with the 2006 World Latitude and Longitude Grids to reduce the size of the ocean polygons. Before intersecting the North East and South East ocean area feature classes, they were clipped to the 180 longitude. 

Exported the inland water area features from the Digital Chart of the World (DCW) that intersect each of the six regional GTOPO30 coverage extents to shapefiles. During export, set the output coordinate system to WGS 1984. Clipped each of the six regional inland water area feature classes to the extent of the applicable regional GTOPO30 elevation ESRI Grid. Added the attributes FACC_CODE and FACC_DESC to the clipped inland water area feature classes. For all features, calculated FACC_CODE = "BH000" and FACC_DESC = "Inland Water". Deleted the unneeded attributes. 

Appended the inland water area and ocean area feature classes to create six regional GTOPO30 water feature classes. Deleted one feature in the North West shapefile that was located beyond the 180 longitude. Densified features in the six regional water feature classes to approximately one degree. Deleted any unneeded attributes from the six regional water feature classes. Loaded each of the water feature classes into ArcSDE 9.1 feature classes. Any features that did not load due to geometry problems were corrected and reloaded. Converted the six ArcSDE water feature classes to Smart Data Compression (SDC) format. The spatial domain precision was set to two million. Created ArcGISr layer files (.lyr), projection files (.prj), and spatial indices.
