This paper presents an analysis of several methods so far developed to characterize the drainage networks of watersheds, indicating their relevant properties. On the other hand, is elaborated an extract of certain laws, on which the watershed morphometry is based to characterize the drainage potential of watersheds. Finally, based on the proposed framework, is performed the estimation of compactness index and river density of Manabi watersheds, as important input to the design of hydraulic works in the province of Manabi and Ecuador related to the management of watersheds.
