Well locations in Cambodia (2010)

This dataset contains information of well locations, water quality (arsenic, iron contamination...), drilling, digging and lithology. The well map database is an initiative of the Ministry of Rural Development of Cambodia, piloted with financial support from the Water and Sanitation Program of the World Bank, and published online in March 2010. The historical data of water quality, well and arsenic database were also contributed by the following organizations and projects including: Tonle Sap Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Project funded by ADB, Resources Development International (RDI), UNICEF and World Vision International. This dataset is also available for downloading on Cambodia WellMap website in Microsoft Access format. ODC's map and data team has collected and converted it into shapefile, kml and geojson formats, then re-published on ODC's website.

Positional Accuracy There are no known about the issues of accuracy.
Logical Consistency There are no known about the issues of logical consistency.
Completeness There are 62060 records in the national well database. Some of well's coordinates were not provided in database. Therefore, ODC mapper could map out only the existing wells that contained coordinates.
Process Step ODC's map and data team collected the dataset in Microsoft Access format from Cambodia WellMap website and then converted it into Shapefile, KML and Geojson formats in order to be re-published, and available for download, on ODC website. The team also used CartoDB to visualize the Wellmap dataset on its Interactive map, which is available via the link:
