The shapefiles contain the classification and locations of each river style determined by the authors. The data were used to characterise the river styles in Bislak River, Philippines. Shapefiles were clipped to the catchment boundary from different national government agencies to produce different thematic maps. Catchment properties such as land use (from the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA)), geology (from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau), fault (from Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, rainfall isohyets, slope map, and the digital elevation model (also from NAMRIA) were used for regional and catchment analysis. The data only covers the whole Bislak catchment, Philippines. The CSV contains data used for the stream power analysis where stream power is a factor of slope and discharge.

Provenance & quality
The shapefiles used for the regional and catchment analyses were clipped from the national data provided by different Philippine government agencies while the river styles data were delineated and classified using the River Styles Framework as a guide. These data can be used as guidance for characterisation of other rivers in the Philippines.
