An Atlas country hydrogeology map has not been developed for South Africa, as many higher resolution hydrogeological and groundwater resources maps are already available. In particular, these include the '''Hydrogeological Map Series''' of 21 hydrogeological maps at 1:500,000 scale produced by the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS), which covers the whole country. These show aquifer type (e.g. intergranular or fractured) and median borehole yield, with geology, rainfall and other information. These are available to purchase as hard copies from the [https://www.dwa.gov.za/Groundwater/maps.aspx Department of Water and Sanitation].
