NOTE: An Esri file geodatabase named "CMIS_GDB_MAIN.MDB" (containing the polygon feature class named "UNDERGROUND_AFFECTED") was originally provided to personnel of the Indiana Geological and Water Survey (IGS) personnel on November 15, 2017, by personnel of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation. It has been converted to an Esri point shapefile and has been named "COAL_MINE_UNDERGROUND_DNR_IN.SHP" to conform to naming conventions of the IGS. Also, portions of this metadata have adapted content that was originally authored by IDNR personnel.

This shapefile contains information that is related to two additional GIS datasets produced by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation: [1) Coal_Mine_Surface_DNR_IN.SHP: Surface Coal Mines in Indiana (Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation, Polygon Shapefile)] and 2) [Coal_Mine_Entries_DNR_IN.SHP: Underground Coal Mine Entrances in Indiana (Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation, Point Shapefile)].

Description:
Abstract:
COAL_MINE_UNDERGROUND_DNR_IN.SHP provides the locations of all documented underground coal mines that have operated in the coal region of Indiana since the mid-1880s, up to December 31, 2016. COAL_MINE_UNDERGROUND_DNR_IN.SHP is attributed with mine number (IDNR), map number (IDNR), start dates, and end dates.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR, Division of Reclamation, for the source point feature class named "SURFACE_AFFECTED":

"Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN is a polygon-based ESRI ArcGIS shapefile that shows the location and extent of underground coal mines in the coal region of west-central and southwestern Indiana. Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN includes mine locations from documented underground mines that operated in Indiana since the late 1800s. Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN is attributed to allow the mine polygons to be differentiated based on mine number, source information, and dates of mining."

Purpose:
This data provides access to an Esri polygon shapefile containing the most current information for underground coal mines in Indiana, as provided by personnel of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR, Division of Reclamation, for the source point feature class named "UNDERGROUND_AFFECTED":

"Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN is a composite of all underground mine locations in Indiana. It was compiled by the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) as part of a contract deliverable for the Abandoned Mine Lands program of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation. Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN incorporates underground mine locations compiled by the IGS in the early 1980s with hundreds of historic underground mine locations digitized in 1998-1999 and contemporary mine outlines digitized from maps collected from coal companies or the Indiana Bureau of Mines. Original source information for Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN includes company mine maps, field maps and notes of IGS geologists, IGS publications, and Indiana State Mine Inspector Reports. All mine data included in Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN are organized in a GIS using ESRI ArcGIS software of the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) on the Windows platform. Scale of source data ranges from 1:4,800 to 1:100,000. Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN includes attributes which allow the mine polygons to be differentiated based on mine type, mine number, source information, and dates of mining."

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
This data set was provided by IDNR personnel and is assumed to be accurate.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR, Division of Reclamation, for the source point feature class named "UNDERGROUND_AFFECTED":

"The attribute values were checked to ensure that the values were within the range that should be expected based upon the values of the input data that were used to create the shapefile. Two tests for attribute consistency were performed using the QueryBuilder Tool in Esri ArcView: (1) Completeness of values was verified. No values were left blank. (2) Validity of values was verified. All features were attributed with values in the appropriate range and format."

Logical_Consistency_Report: Esri ArcInfo polygon topology is present

Completeness_Report:
This data set was provided by IDNR personnel and is assumed to be complete.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR, Division of Reclamation, for the source point feature class named "UNDERGROUND_AFFECTED":

"Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN includes all documented underground mines in Indiana. Coal_Mine_Underground_DNR_IN was compiled by the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) as part of a contract deliverable for the Abandoned Mine Lands program of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation.

"All underground coal mines included in this shapefile were compiled as part of the Indiana Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) project at the Indiana Geological Survey. The CMIS is an integrated geographic information system (GIS) and database management system (DBMS) created to maintain spatial and tabular data related to coal mines in the Indiana portion of the Illinois Basin. The CMIS includes spatial mine data compiled from all known sources including: company mine maps (from the Indiana Bureau of Mines, county courthouses, coal companies), field maps and notes of IGS geologists, IGS publications, and Indiana State Mine Inspector Reports. In compiling data for the CMIS, every effort was made to ensure data accuracy and completeness. However, it is known that undocumented underground mining has occurred in the study area. Also, because of inconsistency in source map quality and completeness, the actual extent of underground mining may not coincide with the boundaries portrayed in this shapefile."

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
This preliminary data set was provided by IDNR personnel and is assumed to be horizontally accurate, per IDNR standards.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDNR, Division of Reclamation, for the source point feature class named "UNDERGROUND_AFFECTED":

"Mine outlines included in this shapefile were compiled from several sources with varying map scales. Thus, the horizontal positional accuracy of individual polygons may vary. If highly detailed mine location and layout information is needed, contact the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Divison of Reclamation for additional information. Because of inconsistency in source map quality and completeness, the actual extent of underground mining may not coincide with the boundaries portrayed in this shapefile."

Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The vertical positional accuracy was not a factor in the creation of these data. No quantitative tests were performed.

Process_Description:
Data from the early coal mine GIS were converted to a new GIS format and updated with new mine data. Using ESRI ArcInfo version 7.2.1, polygons were extracted from the old GIS coverages and integrated into a new REGION-based GIS format. Each polygon was attributed with source information, dates of mining, and coal seam data. The resulting reformatted mine coverages (over 4,000 including surface and underground coal mines) constitute the primary mine GIS data for the Indiana Coal Mine Information System (CMIS), an integrated geographic information system and database management system. In addition to the reformatting, over 1,000 mine coverages were added to the GIS, including approximately 225 new surface mines, 20 new underground mines, and nearly 1,200 historic underground mine entrance locations.

Process_Description:
Mine coverages from the Indiana Coal Mine Information System were appended using an AML running in ESRI ArcInfo version 7.2.1. The resulting coverage included all mines in the Indiana coal region. This coverage was then projected to UTM zone 16 Nad 83 using the ESRI ArcView Projector extension. COAL_UND was created in ESRI ArcView by using the ESRI ArcView QueryBuilder to select only underground mines and then by using the Convert-to-Shapefile command to create a new shapefile from the selected data.
