The dataset gives the location of 2236 water sources in the Syrian Desert, which were identified on Soviet topographic maps originally printed in 1980. These consist of 853 pools/reservoirs/cisterns, 1061 small wells, 119 large wells and 203 springs, and represent a complete coverage of the study area.
