Description:
Abstract:
DAMS_1996_EPA_IN is a point shapefile developed by the USEPA BASINS 3.0 program and clipped by Bernardin, Lochmueller and Associates. Clips were performed using the "state" field and selecting "Indiana" therefore some points located within the state but attributed to another were removed and some points located outside the state boundary but attributed to be inside are included.

US Environmental Protection Agency BASINS metadata reports -

"This dataset provides a locational map of 75,187 dams in the conterminous United States. The National Inventory of Dams was originally developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. It was developed to track dam related problem areas. This database shows the age of the dam, number of people living downstream, and some inspection information. The dam inspection data also includes location information (such as latitude, longitude and nearest town), a description of a dam's size, reservoir capacity, the owner and the regulatory oversight agency. For distribution with BASINS v.2.0, the data layer was prepared in Arcview shape file format."

DATA DISCLAIMER

This is a small scale national database and positional error does exist. Use should be limited to broad planning and information, however, completeness and horizontal position issues prohibit this digital file from replacing field review for final decision making.

This data set was compiled by Bernardin, Lochmueller and Associates, using data believed to be accurate; however, a degree of error is inherent in all data. This product is distributed "AS-IS" without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied, including but not limited to warranties of suitability of a particular purpose or use. No attempt has been made in either the designed format or production of these data to define the limits or jurisdiction of any federal, state, or local government. These data are intended for use only at the published scale or smaller and are for reference purposes only. They are not to be construed as a legal document or survey instrument. A detailed on-the-ground survey and historical analysis of a single site may differ from this data.

"Intended use of data- This data set was prepared to support the U.S. EPA BASINS (Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources) System. The dam point coverage provides Geographic Information System GIS) applications with a valuable data layer for base mapping of dam locations. These locations are used in numerous types of analysis, e.g., stream network analysis, hydrologic flow."

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
No information was included in original BASINS 3.0 metadata. No errors have yet been found in use, considering 1996 data.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
No information was included in the original BASINS 3.0 metadata. Some points overlap but each appears to have a unique identification although no formal tests were performed.
Completeness_Report:
No information was included in the original BASINS 3.0 metadata.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Observing positional accuracy suggests that this layer is best used at smaller scales (suggest >1:45,000). Larger scales may present the problem of the point not being located directly on the stream/pond where it is actually located. Some errors may be significant as is suggested by several points located outside the state boundary but attributed to be within the state.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
No information was included in the original BASINS 3.0 metadata. Vertical accuracy does not appear to be a factor in the digital production of the data set.
