Abstract

Groundwater flow is the movement of water in an aquifer or hydrogeological unit. The dataset shows groundwater flow rate and direction in the hydrogeological unit. Groundwater flow is establish from piezometric surface map. The method used to create the dataset is described in the metadata associated with the dataset. The dataset represents a description of the flow, including rate in m/d, direction, date and source. Typically, the data provided will not be in the form of a shapefile with linked properties but in the form of an image that sketches the groundwater flow. The image could also represent a cross section of the hydrogeologic units showing the regional trends of the groundwater flow.

Lineage is the description of the sources and steps used to create the current dataset.


Introduction
Data comes from each of the groundwater mapping project.
Process step Sources
The datasets were extracted from all projects constituting this series.
Groundwater mapping projects.
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".
