This layer is exactly the same as a shapefile named "strata_a_in.shp" and titled "Stratification of Indiana 2004" that was acquired by personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey from the USDA. The shapefile was renamed and the title was changed in order to conform to metadata standards of the Indiana Geological Survey.
Description:
Abstract:
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) area sampling frame is a delineation of all parcels of land for the purpose of later sampling the parcels. The area frame is constructed by visually interpreting satellite imagery to divide a state into homogenous land use areas (strata) based on percent cultivated. The strata are typically defined as low, medium, or high percent cultivated, nonagricultural land, urban use, agri-urban, or water. The boundaries of the strata usually follow identifiable features such as roads, railroads, and waterways. The strata boundaries do not coincide with any political boundaries, with the exception of state boundaries.
Purpose:
These data are intended for geographic display and analysis at the state level. The data should be displayed and analyzed at a scale of 1:100,000 or smaller (for example, 1:250,000, and so on). The strata data are provided "as is." USDA/NASS does not warrant results you may obtain using the strata data.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The area sampling frame for Indiana was constructed for use in 1989 and was based on USGS 1:100,000-scale topographic maps, 1:250,000-scale digital Landsat imagery, and 1:100,000-scale SureMaps. The boundaries were modified in 2004 to conform to USGS 1:100,000 scale topographic digital raster graphics and digital line graph files. Individual county files were merged into single state file. The coordinates for the strata polygons are projected to UTM Zone 16, WGS 1984 datum (meters). The spatial data file format is Environmental Systems Research Institute's ArcView shapefile format. The shapefile was checked and edited for topology in 2004. Gaps and overlaps were corrected within an ESRI personal geodatabase.

Process_Description:
Personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey acquired the shapefile named "Stratification of Indiana 2004" from the NASS (National Agricultural Statistical Service, USDA). In order to conform to naming and metadata conventions of the Indiana Geological Survey, the shapefile was re-named and the metadata were modified accordingly. Also, within the metadata, definitions were changed for two attribute fields for which the definitions in the USDA metadata did not agree with values that appear in the USDA shapefile: (1) For Enumerated_Domain_Value = 31, the definition in the metadata was changed from ">20 Home/Square Mile" to ">100 Home/Square Mile," and (2) For Enumerated_Domain_Value = 32, the definition in the metadata was changed from ">20 Home/Square Mile" to ">100 Home/Square Mile."
