AbstractA GIS based geological model has been developed for the Oak Ridges Moraine area. This model provides a framework for more site-specific studies and can be used as an exploration tool for groundwater resources. The value of this regional model has been demonstrated through application of the mode! to conduct environmental assessment, land-use development hearings, and for regional groundwater flow modeling (Bocking, 2006). The ability to update successive model versions in a timely fashion, as new data become available, demonstrates the utility of semi-automated modelling (Logan et al., 2005).
