Publication_Information:
Publication_Place: Bloomington, Indiana
Publisher: Indiana Geological Survey
Description:
Abstract:
This raster file was created to display in a geographic information systems (GIS) the density in square kilometers of mapped and modeled (indirectly mapped) sinkhole locations in southern Indiana and Kentucky.
Purpose:
This data set was created to support a statistical regression analysis of potential sinkhole development areas in and around the Hoosier National Forest, United States Forest Service.This data layer is one of a suite of data layers: (1) sinkhole inventory point layer, (2) sinkhole density layer(s), and (3) sinkhole-development risk layer.
Supplemental_Information:
A small portion of this raster density layer is located in northern Tennessee and has been retained because several points from the sinkhole inventory were included on the Kentucky/Tennessee border.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The values of sinkhole density calculated in this data layer are based on point locations contained in SINKHOLE_INVENTORY_IN_KY_2011.SHP. The following is excerpted from the metadata for that data set, "Sinkhole locations provided by external sources were not routinely checked, with the exception of those from Taylor and Nelson, 2008, which were compared to similar indirect mapping methods used in the digital line graph (DLG) contour-extraction methodology of mapping sinkholes. UTM X and Y coordinates represent the horizontal accuracy of the source data set:"

Logical_Consistency_Report:
Checks for duplicates (unique values in unique records) for the primary input data set, SINKHOLE_INVENTORY_IN_KY_2011.SHP, were performed on this data set.

Completeness_Report:
This sinkhole density product used the sinkhole inventory dated November 28, 2011.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Accuracy is no better than that of the source material used to compile SINKHOLE_INVENTORY_IN_KY_2011.SHP, which was the primary input into the density calculation. In that layer, the horizontal accuracy varied from 1:2,400 to 1:300,000 (2 to 150 m), with the predominant accuracy of the sinkhole polygon centroids being between 10 and 12 meters.

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

Process_Description:
Calculated the density of sinkholes in southern Indiana and Kentucky using a kernal density function implemented in ArcGIS v 10, Spatial Analyst Tools. The file SINKHOLE_INVENTORY_IN_KY_2011.SHP was used as the primary input, with a search radius of 1609.344 meters, and an output density in number of sinkholes per square kilometer. The output TIFF value raster had a spatial resolution of 30 meters.
