Watershed Data

If Bigger Watersheds were the Countries of our World

We would call it World Water wisdom
Watershed World
Invitation to the Dream of a Watershed World.
What if Bigger River Basins of our Planet were the Countries of the World instead of the actual arbitraty political divison?
Menaced by the undesirable impacts of contamination derived from overpopulation and progress with inadequate understanding of fragility and vulnerability of spaces, our specie is understanding fast the significance of Pure Water.
Actually we are growing concerned about it´s essential significance, including  her philosophical and mysitical capabilities, and sorry to speak about her when talking of Water -. We understand more clearly that it has reached very high price in supermarket, and we are understanding that we must protect her, save her, and maintain her clean. And that to maintain her clean, we must keep clean and open for her flow, the spaces that she crosses.
If in the past we were so understood and faithfull about our Celestial Father the Sun, of whom there´s no doubt, because is Him who brings days and nights to our existence, it is clear that somewhere we lost the Celestial Route of Water. Water is example in all the wide spectrum of the meaning. Example of the entire spectrum from soft to strong. A flowing paradox. She can drown as well as releif thirst. Example of ductility, flexibility, softness, integrity, power and strongness
Tao English Nothing can be compared to water that is…  but when strong…  

This is a dream with the purpose to understand and view the contrasts between our planet and our world. We understand that the planet is the natural sphere composed of a wide diversity of positions, weathers, spaces and environments, and the World as the Human Perspective, Tendency and Development of the Planet, quite different focuses indeed.
The dream is to imagine a humanity based growing in countries divided by the natural boundaries that water flow provides, instead of the war resultant actual political limits. Althou respected with recogniced patriotism to those that feel it now for their countries and so for those who fought for their foundation and sustentation, we must begin recognicing that the Celestial Route of Water we lost in the past derived in the arbitrary creation of nations, in part related to each particular cultural native growth and developments, without understanding and learning of the importance and significance of the natural boundaries she produces. Makes it more complex the recent evolution of planet integration with the ¨discovery of América¨ and the significant influence of latest off  shore empires and cultures over the smaller and less stronger nations around the planet.
Could Watershed Countries become a better and safer base than actual countries to sustain and maintain the native cultures of the world preserving them from globalizative massification?
Could Watersheds become the best Natural Unit to change Political Inequality?
Who Knows?
But we can imagine…
Between your town and mine, there´s a dot and a dash
With so many points and dashes, the map is a telegram
So your hunger and mine, are well separed.
What would be their areas and characteristic environments?
What would be their natural resources? Weather , , Water Balance, Soils,  Minerals, Scenic Characteristics, Possible Land Uses?

This is an challenge invitation to global enthusiast geographers so to compose together a thematic geography of the world to determine with the best quality, the Physical, Climatic, Biological and Resources Characteristics of each big basin that could be a country in our Watershed World.
As there´s no map yet of such idea, I suggest in first term my own perspective of what could be an ideal country map of the world if limits of bigger basins were the political boundaries starting from the world´s  watersheds map.
AS am not expert but an experienced idoneous, I invite you to seek on the map and find if it results feasible. Hear of any suggestions of what should be changed in case of finding better limits than expressed for Watershed countries.
