The map shows the average annual sediment yield map (ton/ha.year) of the Indaia river basin in Minas Gerais, Brazil. This research analyzed the sediment yield generated by water erosion in this basin from 1988 to 2017, applying the SWAT hydrological model. The results provided insights into identifying areas that contribute most to the sediment yield in the basin, that is, the source areas.
