Below are links to download Microsoft Access 2000 databases from PaGWIS.
The files include data for individual counties and the statewide PaGWISall.exe database, and are updated weekly with any new wells entered by drillers in the WebDriller system.
The files contain data for wells, springs, and groundwater quality throughout Pennsylvania. An interface form can be used to retrieve data quickly on the basis of a county, a latitude-longitude rectangle, or an approximation of a radius around a point. Coordinate values can be entered in either decimal degree or degree-minute-second formats.
The user is expected to have a working knowledge of Microsoft Access and file management under Windows operating systems. Although form retrievals are provided, the PaGWIS database contains much more data than is retrieved by the default queries. The user can modify the queries to retrieve specific information. Definitions of parameter codes are included in Access lookup tables, which are indicated by "LU" in the file name.
