Introduction
General process description
Process step Sources
The dataset mainly comes from the gw_on.zip (archivedocument) file. Using ArcGIS the dataset was cut to keep only the data related to the studied zone (limites_orm.shp). One more file (PGMN_Wells.zip) was downloaded from the Provincial Groundwater Monitoring Network (PGMN) of the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change website (http://www.ene.gov.on.ca/environment/en/resources/collection/data_downloads/index.htm#PGMN). Only the data referring to wells located in the studied area was kept.
