State Atlas Top
  Based on work done, an Atlas entitled “Hydrogeological Atlas of Maharashtra”, on 1:2,000,000 scale has been issued in the year 1999. The Atlas contains 24 plates on various themes, such as soil type,rainfall distribution,physiography hydrogeology etc,. It is very much useful for planning and development of ground water resources of Maharashtra. It provides a comprehensive view of the hydrogeological conditions and related themes of Maharashtra.
