Depth to Initial Ground Water in Feet, at 1:100,000-ScaleEntry ID: WYGISC_DTW1000K
Abstract: This data was created specifically for use in the Wyoming
Ground-water Vulnerability Mapping project. The data represents
only depth to INITIAL ground-water and does not reflect potential
water quantity or quality issues. The data is also limited to
areas within Wyoming in which wells have been recently drilled.
This data represents a depiction of the Depth to Initial Ground
Water for the state of Wyoming (excluding Yellowstone National Park)
at a 100 meter cell resolution, 1:100,000 scale.
The data was created by using Kriging to interpolate
a smooth surface between known data points obtained from the Wyoming
State Engineer's Office well permit records at various years.
