Description:
Abstract:
The base of the gray limestone aquifer is shallowest in Collier and Hendry Counties and slopes to the southeast and east. The altitude of the base of the aquifer generally ranges from 50 to 160 ft below sea level, but the basal surface can be comparatively irregular in some areas.

The map shows the altitude of the base of the gray limestone aquifer in feet below sea level. The contour interval is 50 feet.

Purpose:
The purpose of this report is to evaluate the hydrogeologic framework, hydraulic properties, and ground-water flow of the gray limestone aquifer in southern Florida. The report also emphasizes the geologic framework (stratigraphy and structure) and the hydrogeologic framework (aquifers and confining and semiconfining units) above and below the gray limestone aquifer.

Process_Description:
Original figures created for the publication in Corel Draw were exported into DXF format. Using the conversion wizard DXF to coverage, contour and point layers were selected for output. In Arcedit, using the ADDTICS command, tics were deleted and then added in five locations where well points of known coordinates existed. The create command was used to create a new coverage by copying the TIC and BND files from the existing coverage. This coverage's TIC file was updated in INFO with real world coordinates derived from the report. The TRANSFORM command converted the coverage from digitizer units to real-world coordinates. The final coverage was projected using the projection wizard, topology was built with BUILD, and table attributes were added using ArcMap editor.
