AbstractMaps are central to our sciences; however, after more than fifteen years of aquifer-scale mapping with hundreds of aquifer maps in store, we still do not have a full portrayal of Canada in terms of the groundwater and aquifers of our country.
Over the years we have learned many interesting lessons with our mapping of aquifers and groundwater assessments. These are very valuable lessons, which can be used to move from one aquifer-scale mapping to Canada-wide groundwater assessment and accounting. This very brief presentation intends to provide an update of where we are and where we are heading to by describing a paradigm shift of scales and tools in a new and innovative approach to groundwater assessment and accounting.
