Topography of the Rio San Juan and Lake Nicaragua Watersheds

This map shows the topography of the Rio San Juan and Lake Nicaragua (Cocibolca) Watershed, and the area of Lake Managua or Xolotlán. Additionally, the analysis highlights flat areas along the banks of the bodies of water, which could be more susceptible to flooding. This utilized datasets provided by NASA (SRTM), SINIA-MARENA in Nicaragua, and NOAA (CMORPH and GFS).
