[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set was created for a project to develop data sets to support
ground-water vulnerability analysis. The objective was to create and document a
digital geospatial data set from a published report or map, or existing digital
geospatial data set that could be used in ground-water vulnerability analysis.

This data set consists of digital water-level elevation contours for the
alluvial and ... View entire text

Use Constraints This data set was digitized from a map published at a scale of 1:250,000. The
map represents the elevation of the water levels in the alluvial and terrace
deposits along the Cimarron River from Freedom to Guthrie, Oklahoma, in
1985-86.Water-level elevations represented at this scale are indicative of
broad, regional trends and should not be interpreted as site specific. The
water-level elevation contours were digitized from a mylar-source map (33
inches by 31 inches or 84 centimeters by 79 centimeters), with a
root-mean-squared-error (RMSE) of 0.008 map inches (0.020 map centimeters) or
167.49 feet (51.05 meters) ground distance.
