Transboundary Aquifers of the World, Map at 1:50 000 000 (2.5 Mb pdf)

 

In 2009, IGRAC prepared a map representing the Transboundary Aquifers of the World. The map was officially presented during a special meeting at the 5th World Water Forum. Creating this map and subsequent updates was almost a fulltime job for me at that time. I learnt a lot about map-making, GIS and printing. After these projects I became known as our department's GIS expert. And making maps always remained part of my job and a thing I love to do.

Neno Kukuric (then my colleague, now president of IGRAC), was so fortunate to be able to present the map in person to His Royal Highness Prince Willem-Alexander of Oranje. Unfortunately I don't seem to have a picture of this any more.
