All about alpine rivers - a sort of ...

These days I've found a nice GIS datatset of alpine rivers in Tyrol (running waters as vector lines, many point informations like hydropower plants, sources etc.). Moreover the dataset is creative commons licensed (Attribution 3.0 Austria (CC BY 3.0 AT)).

Data source: Land Tirol - (GIS: GRASS GIS; DEM: SRTM)

Maybe it's already out there, it would be fine to have such a detailed river/hydro dataset for the entire Alps, particularly as a base for an open minded discussion about new hydropower plants nowadays.

And keep the idea of sustainable water use in the sense of the Alpine Convention (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) , Natura 2000 and Water Framework Directive in mind.
