ASTER DEM: http://www.ersdac.or.jp/GDEM/E/1.html

IMD_GRIDDED_Weather: Gridded data published by IMD was processed into SWAT


format

CAUTION:
These DEM datasets are in "Geographic Coordinate System". You need to extract
the data for your area of interest and then convert these data into a "Project
Coordinate system" before using in SWAT interface.

Project system recommended:

If your study area is small, then we recommend using UTM projection for the
corresponding zone
with WGS 1984 as the spheroid

For large study area that may span multiple UTM zone, we recommend using the
standard projection used
by National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Hyderabad and ISRO as follows:
Projection: Lambert Conformal Conic
Linear Unit: Meter
False Easting: 4000000
False Northing:4000000
Central Meridian: 80
Standard Parallel 1: 35.172805555556
Standard Parallel 2: 12.472944444
Latitude of Origin: 24
Datum: WGS 1984

DISCLAIMER:
These datasets are provided as such to you for your convenient usage and
reference. Kindly check the accuracy of these datasets for your area of
interest before its usage.
