LineageA United States Geological Survey (USGS) map of water table potential yield for Stearns County was digitized. This map was published in, "Ground-Water Appraisal of Sand Plains in Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, and Wright Counties, Central Minnesota." USGS Water-Resources Investigations Open-File Report 80-1285 by G.J. Linholm, 1980. The scale is 1:126,720.

Two 1:100,000 plots were made in ARCPLOT and plotted on paper for digitizing. Both of the plots displayed quaternary sand and gravel deposits (map units I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P) from the MGS' Quaternary Stratigraphy layer from the Stearns County Geologic Atlas, Part A, Plate 4.

  • PLOT 1 - displayed digitized USGS potential yield contours
       
  • PLOT 2 - displayed County Well Index (CWI) depth to water values for water table wells
Hua Zhang interpolated the water table potential yield contours from these two plots. With plot 1placed underneath plot 2 for guidance, he drew water table potential yield contours on plot 2.

The contours were digitized in ARCEDIT, the county boundary was added, and the resulting coverage was built as a polygon coverage.
