Abstract:
RAIL_CROSSINGS_INDOT_IN is a point shapefile that contains locations of rail crossings in Indiana, provided by personnel of Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), Business Information and Technology Systems, GIS Mapping. The data set provided by INDOT was in an ESRI shapefile format and was named "RAIL_CROSSINGS2005." RAIL_CROSSINGS_INDOT_IN is attributed with a unique identification number.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by INDOT for the source shapefile RAIL_CROSSINGS2005.SHP:

"Rail_Crossings2005.shp is a point shapefile delineating the railroad crossings within the State of Indiana. The dataset was generated at a scale of 1:1200."

Purpose:
The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by INDOT for the source shapefile RAIL_CROSSINGS2005.SHP:

"To provide a digital coverage of Rairoad Crossings for the State of Indiana, suitable for use in GIS. The data was derived from preexisting INDOTRoad basemap, the 2003 orthophotography, Railroad Database and Programatic Selection Processes."

Supplemental_Information:
The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by INDOT for the source shapefile RAIL_CROSSINGS2005.SHP:

"Alignment of data to 2003 N.A.I.P. Orthophotography. Accuracy of alignment to photo base is (+-) 3-5 meters."

Process_Description:
IGS personnel received an ESRI shapefile named RAIL_CROSSINGS2005 from INDOT personnel on September 13, 2006. RAIL_CROSSINGS2005 was loaded into ESRI ArcMap and the following columns were deleted from the associated attribute table: OBJECT_ID, ID, LRS_ID, STATUS, COUNTY, and PHOTOKEY. IGS personnel then saved the edited shapefile as RAIL_CROSSINGS_INDOT_IN. It should also be noted that portions of the associated metadata provided by INDOT for RAIL_CROSSINGS2005 were extracted and included in this metadata file.
