Web-site URLs and addresses for each license branch were compiled from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), Branch Locator (<http://www.in.gov/bmv/branches/>). Personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey used ESRI ArcMap 9.2 to build an "Address Locator" and used the "Geocoding" tool to perform address matching, using street information licensed from Tele Atlas, Dynamap 2000 v. 17.0.

Description:
Abstract:
BMV_LICENSE_BRANCHES_IN is a point shapefile showing the locations of 142 branch offices of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). Addresses for each branch office were obtained on March 22, 2007, from the Web site of the BMV (<http://www.in.gov/bmv/branches/>). A shapefile was created using the "Geocoding" tool in ESRI ArcMap 9.2 and street information licensed from Tele Atlas, Dynamap 2000 v. 17.0.
Purpose:
This data set was compiled to create a statewide GIS layer showing locations of BMV license branches in Indiana.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Street addresses for branch office locations were obtained from the Web site of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and are assumed to be accurate. Automated geocoding produced match scores of 100 percent for 111 offices and match scores of 81 to 96 percent for 16 offices. Nine locations were re-matched to produce scores ranging from 32 to 76 percent. Six locations could not be matched (match score equals zero); the locations of these offices were determined by using MapQuest (<http://www.mapquest.com/maps/>) or by plotting the nearest town center.
Logical_Consistency_Report: No checks for logical consistency were made.
Completeness_Report:
All branch offices listed by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles have been included.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
For match scores greater than 80 percent, plotted locations are generally within a few hundred feet of actual locations. For match scores less than 80 percent, horizontal accuracy is unknown.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The vertical positional accuracy was not a factor in the production of this shapefile.

Process_Description:
IGS personnel used street information licensed from Tele Atlas in ESRI ArcMap 9.2 to build an "Address Locator." Using the "Geocoding" tool to perform address matching, locations contained in BMV_LOCATIONS.XLS were address-matched. All 136 branch locations were matched to known addresses. Six locations needed to be plotted manually, either by using locations plotted by MapQuest or using the nearest town center. The output was saved as BMV_LICENSE_BRANCHES_IN.SHP. The following fields were then deleted from the attribute table: "Side," "ARC_Street," "ARC_Zone," "Address2," and "State."

Attribute_Definition:
In geocoding, a value assigned to all potential candidates for an address match. The match score is based on how well the location found in the reference data matches with the address data being searched. A score of 100 represents the best possible match to the street network that is being utilized by the geocoding tool, while lower scores represent relatively less reliable matches.
