Description:
Abstract:
SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN is a polygon shapefile that shows the general locations of Silurian rock reef bank formations in Indiana. These data include two major reef bank areas, known as the "Fort Wayne bank area" and the "Terre Haute bank area."

This shapefile can be used in conjunction with SILURIAN_REEF_POINTS_MM54_IN.

Purpose:
SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN was created to provide a digital shapefile of the locations of Silurian rock reef data in the state of Indiana, suitable for use in a GIS, from a preexisting published paper map (Ault, C.H., Becker, L.E., Droste, J.B., Keller, S.J., and Shaver, R.H., 1992, Map of Indiana Showing Thickness of Silurian Rocks and Location of Reefs, Indiana Geological Survey Miscellaneous Map 54).

This shapefile can be used in conjunction with SILURIAN_REEF_POINTS_MM54_IN.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN contains internal attributes with designations that refer to various types of reef exposures. The designations are the same as those appearing on the published map from which the shapefile was derived.
Logical_Consistency_Report: Polygon topology present.
Completeness_Report:
The digital shapefile was derived with minor modifications from a preexisting published paper map (Ault and others, 1992) and is assumed to embody the same definitions and generalizations as were used in the creation of the published map.

SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN contains internal attributes with designations that refer to various types of reef exposures. The designations are the same as those appearing on the published map from which the shapefile was derived.

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
No records exist regarding horizontal positional accuracy of this shapefile. The coordinates used in georeferencing this shapefile were derived from a shapefile named LANDSURVEY_STATE_POLY_IN that was created by the Indiana Geological Survey at a source scale of 1:24,000.

The following note appears on the published source map (Ault and others, 1992): "Base modified from U.S. Geological Survey Base Map of Indiana; 1950." No quantitative tests were performed.

Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The vertical positional accuracy was not a factor in the digital production of SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A paper copy of the map titled "Map of Indiana Showing Thickness of Silurian Rocks and Location of Reefs, Indiana Geological Survey Miscellaneous Map 54" was scanned using a wide-bed color scanner at the Indiana Geological Survey. The scanned TIFF image was then loaded into ESRI's ArcMap 8.3 and georeferenced using the shapefile named LANDSURVEY_STATE_POLY_IN that was created at a scale of 1:24,000 by the Indiana Geological Survey, to obtain control points in UTM Zone 16, NAD 83 coordinates. The georeferenced image was then used as a backround image at the approximate on-screen zoom scale of 1:356,000. ESRI's ArcCatalog was then used to create an empty shapefile named SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN. SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN was then loaded into ESRI's ArcMap where an edit session was started and all polygons were manually digitized. The shapefile table was then attributed with information obtained from the backround image file. All edits were then saved to the shapefile SILURIAN_REEF_POLYGONS_MM54_IN.
