Abstract

In recent years there has been a significant increase in the level of interest in Australia in hydrogeological maps. However, only a limited number of such maps have appeared as yet and there are currently no agreed guidelines for legends. It was for this reason that the Groundwater Committee of the Australian Water Resources Council established a Working Group to develop guidelines, bearing in mind recent developments in computer-assisted cartography. The authors of this report were members of that Working Group. A definitive set of guidelines has yet to be accepted by the Groundwater Committee. This report is produced as a contribution to the debate on hydrogeological maps and the depiction of data on such maps.
