Description

The African Water Resource Database (AWRD) is a set of data and custom-designed tools, combined in a geographic information system (GIS) analytical framework, aimed at facilitating responsible inland aquatic resource management with a focus on inland fisheries and aquaculture. It thus provides a valuable instrument to promote food security.The AWRD data archive includes an extensive collection of datasets covering the African continent, including: surface waterbodies, watersheds, aquatic species, rivers, political boundaries, population density, soils, satellite imagery, and many other physiographic and climatological data. This technical paper is the second of two publications about the AWRD, and it includes a technical manual for spatial analysts and a workbook for university students and teachers.This publication includes: DVD 1 - AWRD Extension and Archive; DVD 2 - AWRD Archive; Appendix A2 - Schematic Diagram of AWRD Interface and Modules; and, Appendix A3 - Scematic Diagram of AWRD Menus and Additional Buttons.The first part of this technical paper, "African Water Resource Database: GIS-based Tools for Inland Aquatic Resource Management - 1. Concepts and Application Case Studies - CIFA Technical Paper 33/1" (ISBN 9251057400) is available to buy separately.
