Description:
Abstract:
The 1994 State Soil Geographic (STATSGO) database for Indiana, obtained from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), was used to create SOILS_STATSGO_SHRINK_SWELL_IN showing the shrink-swell characteristics of soils in Indiana.
The most restrictive shrink-swell characteristic of the soil layer was used to represent the component soil. The component soil values were then assigned to a map unit based on the percentage of that component soil in the map unit. A category was calculated for the map unit based on the most restrictive category at the 70th percentile of the map unit.
Purpose:
This dataset was produced to show shrink-swell characteristics of the soils of Indiana.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
All classification percentages in this shapefile were derived from the STATSGO database. The following statement is derived from the STATSGO metadata: "Attribute accuracy is tested by manual comparison of the source with hard copy plots and/or symbolized display of the map data on an interactive computer graphic system. Selected attributes that cannot be visually verified on plots or on screen are interactively queried and verified on screen. In addition, the attributes are tested against a master set of valid attributes. All attribute data conform to the attribute codes in the signed classification and correlation document and amendments and are current as of the date of digitizing."
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The following statement is derived from the STATSGO metadata: "Certain node/geometry and topology (GT)-polygon/chain relationships are collected or generated to satisfy topological requirements. (The GT-polygon corresponds to the soil delineation). Some of these requirements include: chains must begin and end at nodes, chains must connect to each other at nodes, chains do not extend through nodes, left and right GT-polygons are defined for each chain element and are consistent throughout, and the chains representing the limits of the file (neatline) are free of gaps. The tests of logical consistency are performed using vendor software. The neatline is generated by connecting the explicitly entered four corners of the digital file. All data outside the enclosed region are ignored and all data crossing these geographically straight lines are clipped at the neatline. Data within a specified tolerance of the neatline are snapped to the neatline. Neatline straightening aligns the digitized edges of the digital data with the generated neatline (i.e., with the longitude/latitude lines in geographic coordinates). All internal polygons are tested for closure with vendor software and are checked on hard copy plots. All data are checked for common soil lines (i.e., adjacent polygons with the same label). Quadrangles are edge-matched within the state, merged into a statewide data set, and then edge-matched to adjacent state data sets. Edge locations do not deviate from centerline to centerline by more than 0.01 inches."
Completeness_Report:
The following statement is derived from the STATSGO metadata: "A map unit is a collection of areas defined and named the same in terms of their soil and/or nonsoil areas. Each map unit differs in some respect from all others in a survey area and is uniquely identified. Each individual area is a delineation. Each map unit consists of one to 21 components.

In those few areas where detailed maps did not exist, reconnaissance soil surveys were combined with data on geology, topography, vegetation, climate, and remote sensing images to delineate map units and estimate the percentages of components. The STATSGO map unit components are soil series phases, and their percent composition represents the estimated areal proportion of each within STATSGO map unit. The composition for a map unit is generalized to represent the statewide extent of that map unit and not the extent of any single map unit delineation. These specifications provide a nationally consistent representation of STATSGO attribute data.

The actual composition and interpretive purity of the map unit delineations were based on statistical analysis of transect data. The composition was largely determined by measuring transects on detailed soil survey maps. The number of transects used was proportional to the relative size, number, and complexity of the delineations. The combined data on the length of the map units crossed by the transects were used to determine the percentages of the different soil and nonsoil areas in each map unit.

Specific limits were established on the classification of soils and the design and name of map units. These limits are outlined in U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1975. Soil Taxonomy: A basic system of soil classification for making and interpreting soil surveys. Soil Conserv. Serv., U.S. Dep. Agric. Handb. 436.; U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1992. Keys to Soil Taxonomy. SMSS Technical Monograph No. 19. Soil Surv. Staff, Soil Conserv. Serv.; U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1993. National Soil Survey Handbook, title 430-VI. Soil Surv. Staff, Soil Conserv. Serv.; and U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1993. Soil Survey Manual. Soil Surv. Staff, U.S. Dep. Agric. Handbook 18.

Adherence to National Cooperative Soil Survey standards and procedures is based on peer review, quality control, and quality assurance. Quality control is outlined in documents that reside with the Soil Conservation Service state soil scientist."

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The following statement is derived from the STATSGO metadata: "The accuracy of these digital data is based upon their compilation to base maps that meet National Map Accuracy Standards. The difference in positional accuracy between the map unit boundaries in the field and their digitized map locations is unknown. The locational accuracy of soil delineations on the ground varies with the transition between map units. For example, in areas where changes in soils, climate, topography, and geology occur subtly across a portion of a state, the transition between soil map unit boundaries will be gradual. Where these features change abruptly, such as from an area of foothills to a lake plain, the transition will be very narrow. Soil delineation boundaries were digitized within 0.01 inches of their locations on the digitizing source. The digital map elements are edge matched between data sets. The data along each state boundary are matched against the data for the adjacent state. Edge locations generally do not deviate from centerline to centerline by more than 0.01 inch."

Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Vertical accuracy was not a factor in the digital production of the data set. No quantitative tests were performed.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
1) The STATSGO information was projected from the Albers projection to UTM zone 16 NAD83 using ESRI ArcInfo v 8.1.
2) Data from the STATSGO data set were processed to determine the most restrictive shrink-swell characteristic soil layer in a component soil. The percentage of that component soil in the map unit was then calculated and the sum of the component soils per map unit was determined. The summary totals for each map unit were added together beginning with the most restrictive and proceeding to the least restrictive. The category that was assigned to each map unit was determined based on the category where the cumulative percentage reached the 70th percentile level. The shapefile named "SHRINK-SWELL" was produced.

Process_Description:
SHRINK-SWELL.SHP was converted to a temporary ESRI ArcInfo 8.1 coverage, named "SHRINK-SWELL", for processing. The coverage was then clipped to another coverage, INCLP83, containing the area within the 92 county boundaries for the state of Indiana, which was compiled at a scale of 1:24,000. Since SHRINK-SWELL and INCLP83 boundaries did not coincide perfectly with one another, some polygons along the state boundary were either slightly truncated or slightly extended to the new boundary. In every case, the modifications were minor. The coverage was then converted to a shapefile format, named "SOILS_STATSGO_SHRINK_SWELL_IN", using ESRI ArcView 3.2.
