Data Set Name Description Theme Metadata
Upstate New York Surficial Aquifer Mapping Program (USGS) The NYSDEC developed an implementation plan for the Brownfield and Groundwater GIS Program, and one action identified in that plan was the development of spatial datasets of the aquifer maps published by the U.S. Geological Survey Detailed Aquifer Mapping Program. The USGS has mapped over 30 sand and gravel aquifers in upstate New York at the 1:24,000-scale since the 1980's. Enhancements were made to these maps to create the digital, georeferenced map layers. The digital map layers contain original mapping units and aquifer boundaries as well as new standardized mapping units and updated aquifer boundaries. The original published aquifer maps contain additional base and geologic information not included in these map layers. See the Distribution Information section of the metadata for instructions on opening the file.  Hydrography
