ANUCatchment software used for production of the foundation layers for the Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (the “Geofabric”) version 3

The ANUCatchment Toolkit was developed to assist Geoscience Australia (GA) produce the foundation layers for the Bureau of Meteorology’s Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (the “Geofabric”) version 3 products (http://www.bom.gov.au/water/geofabric/about.shtml), completed in 2016. An additional program, PFAFSTETTER, was added in 2017 to delineate and code nested catchments using a modified version of the Pfafstetter system (Stein, 2018; Verdin and Verdin, 1999) similar to those produced for the 9 second derived version 2 Geofabric products. The programs are tailored to the Geofabric requirements and the format of the input DEM and associated products produced by the ANUDEM elevation gridding program (http://fennerschool.anu.edu.au/research/products/anudem-vrsn-53, version 5.3 as modified for the Geofabric project). They implement and build upon the methods that were developed to produce earlier versions of the data (Stein, 2006; Stein et al., 2014). Required input and output data are in standard text and raster formats so the software might readily be applied to other similar projects elsewhere.
