A predecessor coverage, named SHA_SSB, was subsequently used in the publication of the following maps: (1) Powell, R. L., Frushour, S. S., and Harper, D., 1997, Areas of sinkholes and sinking-stream basins, with cave locations, in southeastern Indiana, Indiana Geological Survey Miscellaneous Map 64. (2) Powell, R. L., Frushour, S. S., and Harper, D., 1997, Areas of sinkholes and sinking-stream basins, with cave locations and springs, in south-central Indiana, Indiana Geological Survey Miscellaneous Map 65.
Description:
Abstract:
KARST_MM65_IN is a polygon shapefile that shows sinkhole areas and sinking-stream basins associated with rocks of Silurian, Devonian, and Mississippian age in southern Indiana.
Purpose:
KARST_MM65_IN was derived from a coverage named SHA_SSB. The purpose of SHA_SSB was to compile unpublished work maps of Richard L. Powell, a former employee of the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS), showing certain karst-associated features of southern Indiana and to bring those maps to publication by the IGS.

Native_Data_Set_Environment: ESRI ArcView 3.2 shapefile format, approximately 954 Kb


Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
KARST_MM65_IN contains one internal attribute that identifies sinkhole areas (SHA) and sinking-stream basins (SSB). This attribute is based on Richard L. Powell's work maps and is assumed to be accurate to the source scale. Values of attributes were visually inspected and compared with values appearing on the source work maps.
Logical_Consistency_Report: ESRI ArcView 3.2 shapefile format.
Completeness_Report:
SHA refers to sinkhole areas larger than 80 acres. Some sinkholes may exist outside the areas delineated as SHA, and some sinkholes may exist within the areas designated as SSB, but such areas are not shown in this shapefile.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
No records exist regarding horizontal positional accuracy of this shapefile. The coordinates used in georeferencing the predecessor coverage, SHA_SSB, were derived from corners of township and range lines that appeared on the source work maps (scale approximately equal to 1:124,640 and 1:126,720). No quantitative tests were performed.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The vertical positional accuracy was not a factor in the production of this shapefile.

Process_Description:
After paper source maps were acquired from Richard L. Powell, personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey traced the polygons onto tracing paper. Personnel then scanned the tracings using a widebed black-and-white scanner, digitized the scans using an automatic tracer program to create a coverage named SHA_SSB, georeferenced SHA_SSB using ESRI ArcInfo 7.1, and attributed the coverage using ESRI ArcInfo 7.1.

Process_Description:
The original coverage, SHA_SSB, was reprojected using NAD83. This coverage was then clipped to another coverage named INCLP83, a boundary coverage for the State of Indiana (compiled at a scale of 1:24,000). The resulting shapefile was named KARST_MM65_IN.
