This definition applies to:

A hole drilled in the ground, a well or any other excavation used to access groundwater. May be used for observation of groundwater (including water level, pressure or water quality).

This definition applies to:

Point feature class that represents the location of a bore and associated attributes. Multiple independently screened bore pipes are regarded as separate bore features.

This definition applies to:

A three dimensional line feature class that represents the hydrogeologic units along a borehole.

This definition applies to:

A table with rock or sediment types classified into hydrogeologic units along a borehole.

Synonym: hydrostratigraphy log

This definition applies to:

An independently screened inlet to a bore that can be pumped or monitored separately. A bore can have multiple pipes, each having one or more screens.

This definition applies to:

A format for storing GIS data within the ArcGIS software.

Related: Geographic Information System (GIS)

This definition applies to:

Homogeneous collections of common features, each having the same spatial representation, such as points, lines, or polygons, and a common set of attribute columns, for example, a line feature class for representing road centrelines. The four most commonly used feature classes in the geodatabase are points, lines, polygons, and annotation (the geodatabase name for map text).

This definition applies to:

A catalog of raster datasets describing properties of hydrogeologic units (e.g. depth or elevation of hydrogeologic unit's top or base, salinity and groundwater level).

This definition applies to:

A three dimensional multipatch feature class that represents hydrogeologic units as a volume.

This definition applies to:

A table with rock or sediment types classified into hydrogeologic units along a borehole.

Synonym: bore log

This definition applies to:

A table with drillers' or geologists' description of rock or sediment types along a borehole.

This definition applies to:

A GIS object that stores a collection of patches to represent the boundary of a three dimensional object as a single row in a database.

This definition applies to:

A spatially-enabled database for storing and analysing Australian groundwater data.

This definition applies to:

Represents geographic features by dividing the world into discrete square or rectangular cells laid out in a grid. Each cell has a value that is used to represent some characteristic of that location.
