Water Sources for livestock in rangeland areas.
Badia Benchmark site in Jordan
Site area located in Amman governorate
of Muhareb watershed
The purpose of the watershed characterization is to provide data for the selection of sites that are suitable for various water harvesting interventions.
Data from the Royal Jordanian Geographic Center (RJGC)
Contour map elevation data
Digital Elevation Model (DEM) (20 meter interval)
Note :scale 1:50000
watershed was subdivided into sub-watersheds visually using contour lines and stream lines
slope steepness is one of the most important criteria for the selection and implementation of water harvesting interventions.
Slope map was derived from the DEM. The slope units were used as the basic units to derive suitability map.
A grid of uniform sampling (500m) was used.
Output: suitability map that indicates possible water harvesting option(s) suitable for each mapping
