Attribute Data is presently managed by using the following systems:
The National Groundwater Database (Open-NGDB) is presently populated with in excess of 244 700 geosite records across the country, only point data.
The spatial distribution of borehole records is also available.
Basic data can be obtained via the Georequest Service at email@example.com.
The National Groundwater Archive (NGA) is currently being developed and is a web-based system capturing all relevant groundwater related data. It will replace the Open-NGDB system.
The Water Management System (WMS) contains over 52 538 analyses of groundwater samples, mostly of macro elements. Data from the National Groundwater Quality Monitoring Programme (NGwQMP) is included.
This application contains surface, groundwater and rainfall data. Data from the National Groundwater Level Monitoring Network is included.
The need to collect and capture as much groundwater-related data as possible is indisputable. The most important mechanism in controlling this development and management of groundwater is deemed the numbering of all geosites. Each Region was allowed to choose a unique numbering system. To obtain numbers contact the relevant Geosite Number Allocator.
Spatial Data is generally available in GIS format – coverages or shapefiles. Groundwater related spatial data that are available are for example
- Hydrogeological mapping series 1:500 000 data – groundwater occurrence, groundwater quality, borehole density distribution, elevation and rainfall
- Hydrogeological regions
- Harvest potential
