General

The present Web Application using Google Maps API allows users to access detailed information about Vietnam largest river basins on their stream networks, essential data on meteorology, hydrology, land cover / land use, the updated information on industrial zones, hydropower, reservoirs, minings, etc.

As of December the 12th, 2017 information and data of 10 river basins namely Hồng – Thái Bình, Bằng Giang – Kỳ Cùng, Mã - Chu, Cả, Hương, Vu Gia - Thu Bồn, Ba, Sê San - Srê Pôk, Đồng Nai and Cửu Long (Mekong Delta) can be accessed through the present web application. The present website which serves as a testing one during the development phase was finally be transffered and installed at the VNR's server in February 2018.

Any comment / suggestion to the web application is welcomed. Please send your feedback to vnbinh@hotmail.com.

Contents of the 10 Việt Nam Largest River Basins Web Mapping

Meteorology, Hydrology, Topography and Land Cover/Land Use
Spatial information and data on hydrometeorology, topography and LC/LU can be accessed by mouse clicking to any symbol/objects.
- Hydrology : Watershed boundary, river and stream network, hydrological stations, Isolines for flow modules (long-term average values)
- Meteorology : Climate station, Isolines for rainfall (long-term average values)
- Topography : Digital Elevation Model
- Land cover / Land use
Hydropower plans, Reservoirs for irrigation, Minings, Industrial zones
Available information / data includes position and key features of each item.
These spatial data can be visual represented with administrative layers of provincial and district boundaries as desired. .
Google Maps as Background Map
Since the tool uses Google Maps as its basemap it also contains all mapping tools / facilities of Google Maps such as zoom in/out, distance and area measurements, switching to sattelite images, etc.
  • Google Maps
  • Javascripts
  • Material Design Lite

Thank Notes

We would like to thank the sponsers (Center for Water Resources Conservation and Development and Oxfam Novib) and all people who have suported development of this web application especially members of the Vietnam River Network.
We sincerely expect receiving more comments and suggestions which are necessary for this web mapping development into a much more comprehensive and usefull to all intereted in Vietnam water resources development and protection.

Campus Maps for Vietnam National University of Agriculture (VNUA)

The same authours has developed an interactive map for VNUA Campus in 2014-2015. The web mapping tool using Google Maps API allows user to locate graphically any building / academic unit / classroom with a simple mouse click. The floor layouts of most buidings can also be displayed visually.

The website is fully mobile compatible using the state-of-the art Google Material Design concept. As far as we know, this web application is the 1st of its kind in the whole of Vietnam universities. There is also a VNUA Planning Mapping application whcih allows user to investigate what VNUA will become in a near future.

Monitored Water Quality Maps for Srê Pôk River

This Google Maps API tool allows accessibility to time series of 8 water quality paramters for Srê Pôk river. The data was collected by WARECOD during 2011-2013 time period at 12 locations along the river mainstrea,. The data is presented by both numers and by animated charts which the user can select by sampling date or by water quality paramter.
