  • Jan Falteisek drew lines perpendicular to potentiometric contours of the Precambrian bedrock on a 1:200,000 scale paper plot of the contours.

  • These lines were digitized in ARCEDIT.

  • The arc command 'arcarrows' turned these lines into arrows in the plot of Precambrian aquifers that appears as an inset on Plate 9 of The Stearns County Geologic Atlas, Part B.
