National Groundwater Information System

National Groundwater Information System

The National Groundwater Information System is a spatial database that contains a range of groundwater information submitted by States and Territories. The system contains more than 800,000 bore locations with associated lithology logs, bore construction logs and hydrostratigraphy logs. 2D and 3D aquifer geometries are also available for some areas.

Hydrogeologic units within the system have been standardised for national consistency using the National Aquifer Framework.

Once released in late 2014, users will be able to visualise the location of more than 800,000 bore sites and their logs using an interactive map of Australia.
