Introduction
Process step Sources
The groundwater composition shapefile was created from an excel file with the groundwater samples location. The geochemical data from Provencher (2014) were manually added to the excel file. These data designate calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sodium (Na), potassium (K), chlore (Cl), bicarbonate (HCO3), sulfate (SO4) and nitrate (NO3) values. The excel file was then opened in ArcGis and with the tool ""Display XY data"", the data have been visualised. The data were then exported in a shapefile with ""Export data"". To standardize the projection system over all the data, the shapefile was projected in UTM NAD83 - zone 10N with the ""Project"" tool.
