This Atlas presents new hydrogeology maps for each of 48 countries in Africa, at 1:5 million scale. At present, 38 of these maps are available to [https://www.bgs.ac.uk/africagroundwateratlas/downloadGIS.html '''download as digital, GIS-enabled shapefiles'''].
 
 
Most of these country maps (currently 38 maps) are available to [https://www.bgs.ac.uk/africagroundwateratlas/downloadGIS.html '''download as digital, GIS-enabled shapefiles'''].
 
  
 
These country maps were developed from the Africa-wide [http://www.bgs.ac.uk/research/groundwater/international/africanGroundwater/maps.html quantitative groundwater maps] developed by BGS in 2010. The new maps combine key hydrogeological information to show:
