SADC-GMI took the initiative and engaged the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC) to revive access to the results from the said SADC Hydrogeological Mapping Project through the new SADC Groundwater Information Portal (SADC-GIP) which gives access to the harmonised hydrogeological map for the SADC region, borehole data and associated information.

More information on the SADC-GIP and the SADC Hydrogeological Map is provided through a brochure developed and published to guide users navigating through this invaluable product.

The SADC Groundwater Information Portal (SADC-GIP) is a map-based information system providing access to The harmonised SADC Hydrogeological Map and Atlas.

The portal is set up as a service to professionals, scientists and other stakeholders in SADC member states who are involved in groundwater management, groundwater development and research on groundwater or related fields. Users can browse maps and underlying data on-line and can create overlays of different maps to create new insights. On request, maps and data are also available in digital format (GIS shapefiles and excel) for further off-line analyses.

The SADC-GIP is developed and maintained by the SADC Groundwater Management Institute (SADC-GMI) with assistance from the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC).
