Data Presentation Levels

You can consult and further analyse the data at the following levels:

  • Area level.
  • City or town level.
  • County level.
  • Water Service Provider level.
  • Water Services Board level.
  • National level.


At area level you will see a high resolution satellite image, a GIS layer contains information on the area such as the area boundary, public water points, pictures, that characterise the area. You can also access tables (Windows) which contain the main data sets (population size, water supply coverage, etc.) and a description of the area.


Downloading and Storing Information on Your Computer

Option One - Web page complete

The first option is to save the web page as a complete HTML file, including graphics. I would suggest that you first create a folder to save your web pages in. This will make them easier to find later. I would suggest creating this folder on the Desktop. It will be easy to find and you can move it later.

Now, browse in Internet Explorer to the web site and page that you wish to save for future reference. Once you are there, click on "File" on the menu bar, then scroll down to "Save as..." and click. A dialog box will come up with your save options. The first option is "Web page, complete (*.htm, *.html)". You can choose the folder to store your saved web page in by using the text box at the top of the dialog box. Either enter the information or browse to the folder.

At the bottom you will find a text box where you can enter the "File name". It will be the title of the page by default (the name of the page in the title bar at the top of the web page), but you can name it anything you want, especially if the title does not describe the page very well.

When you have selected your folder to save the page into and named your file, if necessary, click on the "Save" button. The page will be saved in your folder. When you open the folder you will find 1) the page file as an HTML file and 2) you will also find another folder! This folder contains the graphics used on that page. The folder will be named "Name_of_page files", using the name that you gave the file when you saved it (or the default name, if you use that one).

Each time you save another web page, it will create a new folder for the graphics. Therefore, you can save several pages into your main folder without any problem, each page will have its own graphics folder. The only thing you have to make sure is that you don't name the pages with the same filename!

If you are going to move the page to a different location on your computer, be sure to move both the HTML file and the graphics folder otherwise your graphics will be missing when you open up the page.

Option Two - Web page archive

This option saves the web page as a single, archived file. Again, navigate to the page you want to save, click on "File", scroll down to "Save as..." and then click. There's that dialog box again! This time click the arrow beside the "Save as type" text box and choose "Web Archive, single file (*.mht)". This will save the page as a single file, with the graphics embedded into the file. The extension of the file will be ".mht". For an example, "my_page.mht" would be the filename if I named the page "my_page".

Option Three - HTML only

This option saves only the HTML of the page. Graphics will be absent, but represented by a placeholder box with a red X in it. To save as this type, do the same steps as in the options above, but this time click the arrow in the "Save as type" text box and choose "HTML only". When you open the file later, there will not be any graphics available, just the place holders for them. If the page you are saving contains mostly text, or if the graphics are not important to the page, I would suggest using this option. This file will be smaller than either of the first two options.

When using this option, the page will still retain all of the text formatting, such as bold lettering, italics, etc.


Making Printouts

Have the Web page that you want to print open in your browser.

Click Menu - On the top of your browser is a menu. Click on the first word in the menu, "File". Another menu will drop down.

Click Print - After this menu drops down click on the word "Print".

OK - A box will pop up when you click on "Print". Click on the button that says "OK" and your printer will start printing the page.

Tips: Page Setup - Use the "Page Setup" option to change the way your page looks when it prints. Print Preview - Use the "Print Preview" option to see what your page will look like before you print it.
