Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program

Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program The amount of groundwater exploited is estimated in m³/year. Groundwater usages are classified in four categories: agricultural, industrial, domestic and energy. Typically, groundwater usage should be represented as a series of sub-polygons or points fitting inside the boundary of the hydrogeological unit. The scope and method used to estimate the amount of water are described in the metadata associated with the dataset. The dataset identifies the main usages for the hydrogeological unit. It features numbers and percentages describing groundwater usages for a predetermined scope. The groundwater usage is frequently compiled by municipalities or counties. It could then be possible to display the usage by superimposing a series of pie charts depicting the groundwater usages over multiples administrative areas. 2020-05-05 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.gsc-geosciencedata-donneesgeoscience-cgc.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyGroundwater usageHydrogeologyGroundwater Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program - EnglishWMS https://gin.gw-info.net/service/gin/wms/mediator/gin_en?request=GetCapabilities&version=1.3.0&service=WMS&LAYERS=gw_usage&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program - FrenchWMS https://gin.gw-info.net/service/gin/wms/mediator/gin_fr?request=GetCapabilities&version=1.3.0&service=WMS&LAYERS=gw_usage&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program - FrenchHTML https://gin.gw-info.net/service/api_ngwds:gin2/fr/data/standard.download.html?THEME=12&BBOX=-180,30.84375,5.019531,90 Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program - EnglishHTML https://gin.gw-info.net/service/api_ngwds:gin2/en/data/standard.download.html?THEME=12&BBOX=-180,30.84375,5.019531,90 Data Product Specifications, Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program - FrenchPDF https://gin.gw-info.net/service/ngwds/downloadmanager/file/dps/gw_usage_fr.pdf Data Product Specifications, Groundwater Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program - EnglishPDF https://gin.gw-info.net/service/ngwds/downloadmanager/file/dps/gw_usage_en.pdf
