The Alice Lake Basin Oasis is located in Urho District, Karamay City, and Tori County, Heibukxail Mongol Autonomous County and Emin County of Tacheng District, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China. The geolocation of the Alice Lake Basin Oasis is 45°57′28″N - 46°25′13″N, 84°6′37″E - 85°49′29″E. The Alice Lake Basin Oasis consists of 23 oases with a total area of 442.38 km² (Albers) and a total perimeter of 621.56 km (Lambert) in 2020. The largest oasis has an area of 147.81 km². The main rivers that nourish the oases in the Alice Lake Basin are the Baiyang River, the Daerbute River and the Muhurtay River, with main stream lengths of 166.0 km, 149.81 km and 125.50 km separately. The area of the mountainous part of the basin is 11,327.30 km². The elevation of the mountainous part of the basin is divided into 6 categories. The dataset contains the following data: (1) oasis boundary, (2) water systems that nourish the oasis, (3) boundaries of the mountainous part of the basin, and (4) elevation classification of the mountainous part of the basin. The dataset consists of 66 data files in .kmz, .shp and .tif data formats, with data size of 36.3 MB (Compressed into 5 files with 8.31 MB).
