Abstract : This document is one in a series of terrain analysis procedural guides being developed in support of the Topographic Support System (TSS). It was written specifically for the U.S. Army's Terrain Analysts and presents the methodology for extracting, reducing, and recording information for the drainage and water resources data field. This data field is divided into 3 subfields: (1) water-courses and water bodies, (2) drainage basins, and (3) ground water. Step-by-step procedures are provided for producing a factor overlay and supporting data tables for each of the drainage and water resources data fields. (Author)
