Rivers and lakes downloads available on

During my two-week trip through Laos I collected some tracks and points of interest, of course ;). Last week I started to add them to OpenStreetMap when I realized that there are still a lot of rivers missing. I traced (rather randomly) some parts of rivers from Landsat or where available Bing imagery.

To get a better overview of already traced rivers and lakes, I wanted to have these features as Shapefiles. So I added two more Shapefiles to the available downloads on, one contains rivers (line geometries) and the other contains lakes and larger rivers (polygon geometries).

The downloads are available as usual on or directly from here (rivers) or from here (lakes and larger rivers).
