Description:
Abstract:
This ESRI ArcGIS (version 10.2) point shapefile is an index to the location of 16,282 public point-source coal resource data points in Indiana. This shapefile includes location and coal resource information for each data point. Detailed location and stratigraphic information for each data point are stored in a separate Microsoft Access database named "NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb" that is contained in the Indiana Geological Survey Report of Progress xx. COAL_NCRDS_2014_IN shows data points that are included in NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb.

Purpose:
The purpose of this ESRI ArcInfo point shapefile is to provide an index to NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb: The Indiana Geological Survey National Coal Resources Data System database, a Microsoft Access database of public, point-source coal resource data in Indiana.

Since 1980, staff members of the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) have collected and entered coal resource information into the NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb database as a cooperative project with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The purpose of this project is to provide a means of rapid retrieval of point-source coal resource information, including coal location, thickness, depth, and other parameters.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Data points were checked to determine whether or not all data points are located within the Pennsylvanian System, as depicted in a 1:500,000-scale ESRI ArcGIS polygon coverage of Indiana bedrock information. Since this database is limited to data points of coal resource information, one should expect all data points to lie within the coal-bearing Pennsylvanian System. This test was performed by displaying this point coverage on the bedrock polygon coverage using ESRI ArcView software. The result of this check revealed that all but a small fraction of the data points were located within the areal extent of the Pennsylvanian System boundary. Those few data points that were outside of the Pennsylvanian System were within one mile of the boundary and are assumed to be valid data.

Spot checks were conducted to compare the values that appear in the fields named "Twnship" and "Range" with townships and ranges in the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) of Indiana. Several discrepancies were noted but not corrected.

Coal beds in Indiana seldom exceed 15 feet in thickness. However, inspection of thickness values indicates that some records exceed reasonable limits for coal thickness.

Logical_Consistency_Report: Point features present.

Completeness_Report:
This point shapefile contains 16,282 data points. The coals that are indexed in this point shapefile are limited to coal members of Indiana.

Process_Description:
A Microsoft Access database named "NCRDS_Indiana2014.mdb" published as Indiana Geological Survey Report of Progress xx was used to create an ESRI ArcGIS point shapefile. The table named "LOCATION" was loaded in ESRI ArcMap. The 'Add X Y" command was used to display all the points. The "Export" command was then used to export the datapoints as a shapefile named "COAL_NCRDS_2014_IN.shp."
