Lineage

This map was made with water level information from three general sources: driller’s logs, USGS well logs, and measurements by DNR staff in conjunction with well sampling for this atlas project. The driller’s log data were obtained from the CWI database and represent a data set (located and unlocated) that was collected over a period of several decades and spans seasonal and multi-year climatic trends of wet and dry conditions. Where the dataset included both CWI drillers log information and water levels collected by DNR staff, the DNR data were used. The water table elevation map was created by Jim Berg by labeling the water table elevation values next to the well locations in Arc GIS 9.1 with both a topographic DEM and a topographic map as background layers. Water table elevations were first drawn by Jim Berg as 10 foot line contours using the land topography as a guide in areas where data were scarce. The line shapefiles were subsequently converted to elevation DEM files by Jim Berg using the ArcGIS topo to raster tool with the default parameters. The final raster was converted to a polygon shapefile.
