Title:
Prediction of potential areas of sinkhole development in southwestern Indiana using multiple regression analysis
Publication_Information:
Publication_Place: Bloomington, Indiana
Publisher: Indiana Geological Survey
Description:
Abstract:
This point shapefile was created to display in a geographic information system (GIS) 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 was used as the basis for a related layer of sinkhole density, as well as a sinkhole-development risk layer.
Supplemental_Information:
A small number of points are located in northern Tennessee and have been retained because they were contained in the same database as the Kentucky point locations.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
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) were performed on this data set. No checks on topology were performed on this data set.
Completeness_Report:
All fields were checked to ensure that all records were populated. Only sinkhole locations from the sources and methods used in the lineage section below were included in this database. Indirect methods were used to infer locations of many sinkholes, described in the process steps below. Sinkholes were not routinely identified (other than sparse GPS measurements) at scales below 1:12K.

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. The horizontal accuracy varies 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:
Vertical accuracy was not a factor in the digital production of the data set. No quantitative tests were performed.

Process_Description:
Data aquired from Taylor and Nelson, 2008, were imported by 8-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC) basin folder from an external hard drive with data from Charles Taylor. Within each folder was a database called karstdata.mdb. Each basin's database had a feature class called sinkpoint.shp (points) or sinkpoly.shp (polygons). All point files were merged; all polygon files were merged. The centroid of each polygon was extracted and joined to the sinkpoint data to represent sinkholes in Kentucky, Indiana (lesser), and Tennessee (few).

Process_Description:
Using the digital elevation data from the 2005 Orthophotography Project, the 5-meter data was resampled to 10-meters using a bilinear interpolation. A fill process was then conducted in ArcGIS v 9.3 to create a surface with no internal depressions. The surface was subtracted from the original topographic surface to identify sinks. The aggregated cells representing sinkholes were converted to polygons and the polygon centroid (inside) was used for the sinkhole location.

Process_Description:
For each individual data set, the files were projected to UTM NAD 1983, Zone 16. The "merge" command was implemented in ArcGIS v. 9.3 to combine the data sets. A tool called "Delete Identical" was used to remove identical data points. These were common between the sinkholes derived from DLG closed contour extraction and the Taylor and Nelson, 2008, data, which used the same methods. The same analysis was conducted to remove coincident points derived from DEM analysis. Data points believed to represent the same feature, but not identical because of source scale or projection problems, were also filtered so that only one of the points was retained.
