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 sets that could be used in ground-water vulnerability analysis. This data set consists of digitized water-level elevation contours for the Vamoosa-Ada aquifer in east-central Oklahoma. The Vamoosa-Ada aquifer is an important source of water that underlies about 2,320-square miles of parts of Osage, Pawnee, Payne, Creek, Lincoln, Okfuskee, and Seminole Counties. Approximately 75 percent of the water withdrawn from the Vamoosa-Ada aquifer is for municipal use. Rural domestic use and water for stock animals account for most of the remaining water withdrawn. The Vamoosa-Ada aquifer is defined in a ground-water report as consisting principally of the rocks of the Late Pennsylvanian-age Vamoosa Formation and overlying Ada Group. The Vamoosa-Ada aquifer consists of a complex sequence of fine- to very fine-grained sandstone, siltstone, shale, and conglomerate interbedded with very thin limestones. The water-yielding capabilities of the aquifer are generally controlled by lateral and vertical distribution of the sandstone beds and their physical characteristics. The Vamoosa-Ada aquifer is unconfined where it outcrops in about an 1,700-square-mile area. The water-level elevation contours were digitized from a mylar map, at a scale of 1:250,000, used to publish a plate in a ground-water report about the Vamoosa-Ada aquifer. The water-level elevation contours in this data set extend west of the aquifer outcrop to areas where Vanoss Group rocks overlie the Ada Group. The data set also includes a water-level elevation contour for a terrace deposit east of the aquifer outcrop near the North Canadian River. Water-level elevations range from 800 to 1,000 feet above sea level for the Vamoosa-Ada aquifer.

This data set was digitized from a map published at a scale of 1:250,000. Water-level elevation contours 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 map (40 inches by 13 inches) with a maximum registration root-mean-squared error (RMSE) of 0.012 map inches (0.030 map centimeters) or 243 feet (74 meters) ground distance.
