Lineage
  • A 1:100,000 scale map showing static water level elevations of County Well Index (CWI) wells which draw water from the Precambrian bedrock unit. (see metadata for 'cwipt') was created in ARCPLOT and plotted on paper.
    • Hua Zhang interpolated contours from the static water level elevation values, and drew them on this plot.
         
    • These lines were digitized in ARCEDIT.
