Visual display of the GIS as a tool to prioritize environmental releases, integrate their management and alleviate their public threat


Figure 14. Due to the number of wells in the database this figure does not show a representation
           of the records selected.
Figure 15. Depressing the Q button will load 7.5 Minute Topographic maps (DRGs) this will allow
           the user to view additional information including contours for the area of interest.
Figure 16. Selecting the red pennant will bring up a pop-up menu that will allow the user to select
           base layer information for an additional county. This button is useful if the area of
           interest borders two or more counties.
Figure 17. Depressing the S button will allow the user to add statewide data layers from a pop-up
Figure 18. Pressing the M button will send the current view to a map layout where the map will be
Figure 19. Selecting the link button will display a pop-up menu that will ask you to select a LUST
           or ERRP database to link to contamination sites.
Figure 20. After selecting a database a pop-up menu will appear that allow you to further select
           the category of information you would like to link to contamination sites. The options
           include an impact, priority or substance table.
Figure 21. In this example the impact table was selected and a further pop-up menu will query
           you to select the the type of impact.
 Figure 22. The link table has been added and another prompt will ask if you would like to add
            additional tables.
 Figure 23. In this example no additional tables were selected and the view highlights ERRP sites
            that have known groundwater contamination.
 Figure 24. Selecting the D button will result in a pop-up menu that allows the user to select other
            projects specialized projects that contain information collected in the Northeast
            Region. The Branch River Priority Watershed Project has been selected.
 Figure 25. Once a project has been selected a menu will appear that will ask if you like to delete
            the current features or they may be saved for further use.
 Figure 26. Branch River Priority Watershed potential contaimnation sources will be displayed.
 Figure 27. Using a combination of previously discussed buttons will display topographic maps
            and watershed boundaries. Highlighting the selected features will result in tables to be
 Figure 28. Pressing the D button again will prompt to select another project. This example will
            select the Oshkosh\Keeneville water sampling results project.
 Figure 29. Once again querying some of the selected sites will result in water quality results for a
            sampled area.

            The above project has allowed the inexperienced GIS user to query and obtain
            knowledge on a specific area that can provide additional help to better serve
            customers.                            t
