Maps & Posters

To coincide with international events and publication of the World Atlas, we publish maps and posters showcasing dam and hydropower construction regionally and internationally.

World Maps of Hydropower & Dams are published each year, to coincide with the World Atlas & Industry Guide.

These show major schemes (> 60 m high dams) under construction, the total numbers of dams of all sizes in operation in each country, and statistics on hydropower capacity and production.

Regional Maps are published to coincide with various international events. So far, Maps have been published to show water resources development projects under construction in Africa, India, Turkey, China, Europe, Latin America, North America, Korea, Japan, China, Iran and Russia.

Our Technical Poster series are an attractive source of reference for all those interested in water resources development projects worldwide. Posters have been published of: the Bieudron powerplant, Switzerland; the Guangdong pumped-storage scheme, China; the Freudenau powerplant, Austria; the Goldisthal pumped-storage scheme, Germany; and the Kárahnjúkar dam and powerplant in Iceland. The World Map of Hydropower & Dams is distributed each year with the World Atlas of Hydropower and Dams in September.

Technical posters are generally produced to commemorate major international conferences, such as ICOLD Annual Meetings or H&D’s annual Hydropower conferences, or for project inaugurations. They are co-sponsored by some of the leading companies in the profession, and give an opportunity for these companies to demonstrate their expertise in these major projects which supply water and power to the world.
