Introduction
General process description
Process step Sources
The dataset mainly comes from the file well_dls.shp of the gw_ab.zip folder (archivedocument), data from the table GW_TEST.WellBorehole_Ab of the CAL_TEST - GW Test -RO.sde database was also added the dataset. Only the data regarding the wells in the studied area (limites_paskapoo.shp) were kept. Data from the field static_water_level and static_water_level_date are from the table well_obs (gw_ab.zip) and the field depth_to_bedrock from table GW_TEST.WellBoreholeTbl_AB (BDR_TOP) of the CAL_TEST - GW Test - RO.sde database. Finally data regarding the lithology is from table well_log (gw_ab.zip).
