Abstract

This dataset shows the groundwater flow of the Nanaimo Lowland bedrock aquifer, British Columbia. The study area is from Nanoose Bay to Deep Bay, designating a low relief coastal strip along the southeastern part of Vancouver Island, BC. The bedrock aquifer groundwater flow was realised from the piezometry. The groundwater flow lines were drawn perpendicularly to the piezometric lines. The bedrock aquifer shows that groundwater mainly flows from the mountains (inland) towards the Strait of Georgia.

Introduction
Process step Sources
The groundwater flow was realised on the basis of the bedrock and the Quadra piezometry maps. These two maps were saved as png format and imported in CorelDraw. For each map, flow lines were traced with the ""polyline"" tool, following perpendicularly the piezometric lines. The flow direction was then indicated in adding a narrow at the extremity of each flow line. The image was exported in png format.The images were georeferenced using the « Georeferencing » toolbar in ArcGis, referencing the georeferencing on the study area shapefile. To bring the images roughly in the right location, a ""fit to display"" was applied. The images were then projected using the tool ""Project".
