Tecate Groundwater GIS Data Download
Identification and Mapping of Potential Ground Water Contamination Sources in Urban Tecate
This binational project created a data storage and analysis tool for groundwater and surface water resources in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico. The project converted existing spatial and non-spatial data into a geographic information system (GIS) for ease of use by agencies, researchers, and the public. The project also inventoried potential sources of ground water and surface water contamination in Tecate. The purpose is the sustainable planning of land use, zoning, and water services for the community.
