How do you calculate a watershed boundary based on predefined pour point locations? How do you calculate drainage basins based on the same information? Is there a resource I can look at?

Mapping Center Answer:

If you have Spatial Analyst, you can use the Hydrologic Analysis tools.  One of the things you can do with these tool is to delineate watersheds. The specif command is one called Watershed, but you might want to ready the Hydrology Tools overview so you make sure that your data are set up right for this analysis -- and to see what else you can do with the tools!
