This interactive mapping application provides access to water-related data for Texas. The viewer contains several GIS datasets relating to water resources, including TWDB groundwater data, brackish groundwater data, and data from the Submitted Driller's Reports Database. For more information on TWDB groundwater data resources, please visit the following links:
A three dimensional interactive viewer for exploring the major aquifers of Texas. After choosing an aquifer, users can choose to be re-directed to a 3D viewer that allows visual manipulation of the subsurface model. The subsurface models are based on data derived from the TWDB Groundwater Availability Modeling Program. Individual model layers can be displayed or hidden and the entire model can be rotated and reoriented. In addition, 3-dimensional cell columns or rows can be displayed as a cross section.

This application displays water planning information on which the 2012 State Water Plan is based. Each water user group is mapped to a single point near its primary location; therefore, an entity with a large or multiple service areas may be displayed outside the specific area being queried. The map views are schematic, summarizing and displaying the available data with some limitations. Some water sources, for example, may not be shown but will appear in the tables below.
This website is a product of the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) Water Science Conservation Division and is made possible by the support of management and staff at TWDB. This project is part of our ongoing efforts to synthesize and communicate water-related data to scientists, policy makers and the public.
The Geospatial Emergency Management Support System (GEMSS) was developed by the Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS), a part of the Texas Water Development Board, using the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) managed by the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM). It is the first coordinated effort to create an infrastructure in which data collected during and after major disasters can be integrated with real-time and existing geospatial data.
