The country hydrogeology  maps in this Atlas provide an overview of the hydrogeology and geology of each of 48 countries in Africa, at 1:5 million scale. The maps will be available to download as digital, GIS-enabled shapefiles with two themes:  
 
 
Most of these maps (currently for 38 countries) are available to [https://www.bgs.ac.uk/africagroundwateratlas/downloadGIS.html '''download as digital, GIS-enabled shapefiles'''].
 
 
 
The maps have two themes:  
 
  
 
* '''geology''', with geological categories that reflect significant hydrogeological units (MacDonald et al. 2010); and
