Interactive Water Use Map and Bar Chart for Kentucky

Interactive Aquifer Maps

Two scientists developed a web-based storyboard to highlight the results of the USGS Report, Hydrologic Budget and Conditions of Permian, Pennsylvanian, and Mississippian Aquifers in the Appalachian Plateaus Physiographic Province.  This storyboard has also been used to show maps, and corresponding data, for the Soil Water Balance (SWB) model. The map and storyboard were built using D3.js. An example map and chart are available on Github.
