Introduction
General process description
Process step Sources
The dataset comes from the gw_on.zip (archivedocument) file. The data for the groundwater elevation comes from the dataset 'Puits d'eau souterraine dans la Moraine d'Oak Ridges'. The data for the well_elevation field were copied from the original file without modification. The data for the field groundwater_elevation were calculated as follow: well_elevation - static_water_level. Finally the data for the groundwater_depth field correspond to the static_water_level field of the wells dataset. Only the records showing non null data for the well_elevation and static_water_level fields were kept to create the dataset.
