Liupan (2928m), to Mt. Baiyushan (1823m), and then follows the Mt. Huanglong to meet the Yellow River. The geolocation of the basin is from 103。58′18″E in the west, 110。16′28″E in the east, and 33。41′47″N in the south, 37。24′30″in the north. The total area of the basin is 134,731.12km2,the boundary of the basin is 2768.24km long. The most historical heritages, such as the Xi’an city, one of the oldest capitals of China are located at the basin. The boundary data of the Weihe river basin was developed based on the ASTER-DEM with the statistic models and validated by the google earth images. The data is archived in both .kmz and .shp formats with the compressed data size of 8.47MB.
