OKLAHOMA AQUIFERS WITH DIGITAL DATA SETS

Alluvial and Terrace aquifers associated with the:

  • Cimarron River from Freedom to Guthrie in northwestern Oklahoma
  • Enid Isolated terrace in northwestern Oklahoma
  • Beaver-North Canadian River from the panhandle to Canton Lake (northwestern Oklahoma)
  • North Canadian River from Canton Lake to Lake Overholser (central Oklahoma)
  • North Canadian River from Oklahoma City to Eufaula Lake (east-central Oklahoma)
  • Tillman terrace in southwestern Oklahoma

  •  

    Bedrock aquifers:

  • Antlers aquifer in southeastern Oklahoma
  • Central Oklahoma aquifer
  • Elk City aquifer in western Oklahoma
  • High Plains aquifer in western Oklahoma
  • Rush Springs aquifer in western Oklahoma
  • Vamoosa-Ada aquifer in east-central Oklahoma

  • INTRODUCTION

    Digital geospatial data sets of aquifer characteristics have been produced from existing, published paper reports for major aquifers in Oklahoma. The aquifer characteristics compiled include hydraulic conductivity, recharge, water-level elevation, and aquifer boundaries.

    The individual aquifer characteristic data sets are designed especially for use with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for computerized mapping and spatial analysis. The data sets may be used for a variety of purposes such as studies of water, environment, agriculture, and other related topics. These data sets were developed in cooperation with the State of Oklahoma, Office of the Secretary of Environment for an aquifer vulnerability study. The data sets are provided in nonproprietary Digital Line Graph (DLG) and ARC/INFO export file formats. (Use of trade names is for descriptive purposes only, and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.)

    No software is provided with these data sets. Users will need GIS software to use the data sets. The U.S. Geological Survey does not recommend or endorse any particular software package for use with these data sets. For some links to more information on GIS software and capabilities, see:  The GIS FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), GIS Companies on the WWW, USGS GIS Information.
