What's new – Watershed tool updated with even better descriptions of catchment characteristics

Jul 7, 2022

The Watershed tool now supports an expanded set of catchment characteristics that enable you to gain an even deeper understanding of your watershed. When you query a point with the Watershed tool you can now choose to see the longest upstream flow path to that point including both the flow path length and the average slope along the flow path.
If the longest flow path is not enough, we give you the Length/area histogram. This histogram describes how the area of the watershed is distributed across flow path lengths. Why is this useful? Because all watersheds are unique and have very different shapes (even if they have the same longest flow path length), and this ultimately affects runoff behaviour.
