Provenance information The basin catchments were digitised from an OSI source and checked against verified River Basin District boundaries. Digitisation was carried out in 1997 from a 1958 source and subsequently codes for WFD were attributed. Spatial Accuracy: Shared boundaries between catchment areas and (I)RBDs have been updated as a result of field verification processes. Digitised from a 1:63360 source and a verified RBD GIS layer. Thematic Accuracy: Assigned European and Member state codes for WFD reporting, hydrometric area code and international RBD code.
