Abstract
<p>This map (raster dataset, single layer) uses existing datasets to map globally &ldquo;How important point x is likely to be for meeting the demand of a reliable &amp; useable source of water on a scale of 0 to 1?&rdquo; This relatively simple approach uses estimated water demand in a given basin as weight to identify pressure for flow regulation and water provisioning services. Precipitation and land cover estimates are then combined with it to give some insight into the hydrologic attributes of &ldquo;location&rdquo; and &ldquo;timing&rdquo; of flow that the ecosystems may influence. The underlying assumption here is that undisturbed ecosystems everywhere ar...
