National Flow Direction Grid


The National Flow Direction Grid is the national coverage of flow direction for all of Australia.

The Flow Direction Grid is a regular grid of surface flow directions accompanying the GEODATA 9 Second Digital Elevation Model (DEM) Version 3. It ascribes to each DEM point one of eight cardinal directions (E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, N, NE) denoting the direction of surface flow from each grid point to one of its eight immediate neighbours.
