Proposed Map Templates

The proposed templates presented are proposed maps to package hydrogeological information for different users. The proposed templates will base information on international standards for hydrogeological maps.

In addition to showing maps, when the hydrogeological maps are presented as interactive web maps, it will be possible to view different combination of layers superimposed on top of each other. I addition, on web maps will illustrate existing water points where point source information can be extracted in either tabular form or as a PDF image showing geological information from the borehole/water-point under investigation. Illustrations of the type of information to be displayed is also illustrated on this page.


Under construction

 

The MIS- GIS unit propose to use 8 map templates for the hydrogeological maps.

 

Templates and laysers.

The illustration on the left shows methodology for making the hydrogeological maps. There are base maps with colours. Above this different information is provided in layers.

On paper maps, all this information is fixed once the combination of information is decided. On Web based maps, different sets of information can be selected based on users need.

The GIS unit has in consultations with hydrogeologists and users of hydrogeological data worked out data sets which would be of best for users. See examples below.

Locatiion Map template v01:

 

This map will include roads, villages, rivers and elevation above sea level in different colors for Afghanistan provinces (here Faryab province)

Location and water points map template v02: Faryab_02_Location_Map_and_Waterpoint_Types_V01

Location map with waterpoint types:

Map showing elevation above sea level and rivers, but also showing:
-Dug wells
-Boreholes
-Springs
-Karezes
In different symbols. Villages and roads not shown

Electric Conductivity map template v03: Faryab_03_Electrical_Conductivity_Map_V02_1190px

Electrical conductivity (EC) map – Kriged polygons with symbols (coloured, graduated in size)mplate under preparation...

In this map, EC values will be shown with graduated symbols against a kriged background. We will use standard color table explanation. The analysis will be based on data from Faryab and its beyond areas. The kriged contours will be cut off at a distance of 5-10 km from the nearest data point.

Static Water Level map template v04: Faryab_04_Static_Water_Level_Map_bgl_V02_1190px

TemStatic water level map (m below ground level) – Kriged polygons with symbols (coloured, graduated in size)plate under preparation...

Static water levels meter below ground level (m bgl) will be shown with graduated symbols against a kriged background. In addition, rivers and faults will be shown in this map. The kriged contours will be cut off at a distance of 5-10 km from the nearest data point.

Static Water Level map template Map template v05 above sea level: Faryab_05_Static_Water_Level_Map_asl_V01

Static water level map (m above sea level) – symbols (coloured, graduated in size)

Static water levels meter above sead level (m asl) will be shown with graduated symbols against ground elevation background (DEM). In addition, rivers and faults will be shown in this map.

Geological Map template v06: Faryab_06_Geological_Map_V04

Geological map

Geological map of Faryab with a full palette of geological units explanation will be included in this map.

Hydrogeological Map template v07: Faryab_07_Hydrogeological_Map_V06.

Hydrogeological map

Geological units, recoded and reshaded according to aquifer type. David to provide legend
