AbstractMany Canadian government agencies collect, analyze, and report on groundwater. There is an increasing need for government agencies to work together to provide improved access, distribution, and viewing of data holdings. Advances in web based mapping and data standards is making this progressively more possible (e.g. Peterson, 2003). Using Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) technologies a start is being made to deliver a national scale web mapping portal with enhanced analytical tools to the Canadian public. This will enable user groups to improve the management of their water resources and contribute to enhanced decision support capabilities. It will also permit access to online data by non GIS specialists or in settings where expensive GIS software is not available. This is seen as the first step in developing a more complete web mapping portal to the National Groundwater Database at the Geological
Survey of Canada.
