Process_Step:

Process_Description:

This shapefile was modified from the original, Digital Atlas of Planet Earth shapefile (Hearn, 2003), to more closely follow the topography and hydrology of Ecuador. Overlay analysis was performed with other vector and raster files to ensure the accuracy of the data.
