This shapefile was compiled based on 3,248 datapoints from the National Coal Resource Data System Database (NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb, (unpublished Indiana Geological Survey, Access Database created by Agnieszka Drobniak and Maria Mastalerz), Indiana Geological Survey Coal Petroleum Database Management System (PDMS),and data provided by Phil Ames from the Peabody Coal Company.

Description:
Abstract:
In the past a series of reports on coal resources of selected counties in Indiana were published as part of the Special Report series of the Indiana Geological Survey. These reports included maps showing extent of the Colchester Coal Member (Linton Formation, Pennsylvanian). The extent maps were based on coal-test records, mine-map notations, and interpretations of geophysical logs that are included in the files of the Indiana Geological Survey. Since 1980, staff members of the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) have also collected and entered coal resource information into the NCRDS Database as a cooperative project with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The purpose of NCRDS Database is to provide a means of rapid retrieval of point-source coal resource information, including coal location, extent, and other parameters. Based on all available NCRDS and PDMS data and data provided by Phil Ames from the Peabody Coal Company as of August 2014, a new map of Colchester Coal Member extent was created. It is the most current extent map of the Colchester Coal Member. Because additional data on coal extent are obtained by the Indiana Geological Survey on an annual basis, interested users may wish to contact the IGS for information on these more up-to-date sources.

Purpose:
COAL_COLCHESTER_DEPTH_IN_2014 was created to provide a multi-county digital shapefile, suitable for use in a GIS, from Indiana Geological Survey National Coal Resource Data System Database (NCRDS) a Microsoft Access database of public, point-source coal-resource data in Indiana, Indiana Geological Survey Coal Petroleum Database Management System (PDMS) and data provided by Phil Ames from the Peabody Coal Company.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
COAL_COLCHESTER_DEPTH_IN_2014 contains internal attributes with designations that refer to minimum and maximum values (in feet) of various depth ranges. This shapefile was created using the NCRDS Database that contains information coming from several different sources, including logs from coal-test drilling, interpretations of geophysical logs, and mine notations. The accuracy, precision, and distribution of these three types of data vary greatly. Mine-map notations are probably the most accurate, followed by drilling logs of good quality. Interpretations of geophysical logs are the least accurate source of information. The low resolution and the small scale of these logs make estimating coal depth difficult. Because different types of data were used in the compilation of this shapefile, the user should assume that attribute values are no better than that achievable from the least accurate and precise source (namely, interpretations of geophysical logs).

Logical_Consistency_Report: Visual inspection only; no quantitative tests were performed.

Completeness_Report:
The digital shapefile was derived from the NCRDS Database and is limited to the extent of the Colchester Coal Member in Indiana.

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The accuracy of this ESRI ArcGIS shapefile is dependent upon the accuracy of the source data of each data point, and the accuracy with which these data were manually entered into the database.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Vertical positional accuracy of the published paper source map is unknown. No quantitative tests were performed.

Process_Description:
A Microsoft Access database named "NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb", Indiana Geological Survey Coal Petroleum Database Management System (PDMS) and data provided by Phil Ames from the Peabody Coal Company were used to create this ESRI ArcGIS shapefile. 3,248 data points showing the depth information of the Colchester Coal Member were exported from the combined database and using "Add X Y" command displayed in ArcMap. The "Export" command was then used to export the data points as a shapefile named "coal_colchester_depth_pt_in_2014.shp." Using topo to raster interpolation high-resolution depth digital raster was created. The raster was reclassified into 50-feet ranges and exported as a COAL_COLCHESTER_DEPTH_IN_2014 shapefile. Mapped depth ranges from 0 to 1,250 feet. The shapefile was then converted to a polyline, with attributes being preserved, and smoothed using "Smooth Line" option in ArcToolbox (ArcToolbox > Cartography Tools > Generalization > Smooth line). Finally, the polygon was reconstructed using Feature to Polygon option.
