Description:
Abstract:
This data set shows the Indiana-portion of the 1000-meter United States National Grid (USNG).

The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "IN_USNG_UTM16.SHP":

"This is a polygon feature data layer of United States National Grid (1000 m x 1000 m polygons) constructed by the Center for Interdisciplinary Geospatial Information Technologies at Delta State University with support from the US Geological Survey under the Cooperative Agreement 07ERAG0083. For correct display, please set the base coordinate system and projection such that it matches the UTM zone for which these data were constructed using the NAD 83 datum. Further information about the US National Grid is available from <http://www.fgdc.gov/usng> and a viewing of these layers as applied to local geography may be seen at the National Map, <http://www.nationalmap.gov> ."

Purpose:
The United States National Grid (USNG) establishes a nationally consistent grid reference system (or "language of location"), and is intended to support emergency response, the general public, and commercial activities. It provides a grid reference system that is seemless across jurisdictional boundaries and is the foundation for a universal base map index. Using the USNG provides an unambiguous way to describe locations where users are operating in areas away from established road networks, or in areas affected by natural disasters where roads and/or road signs have been destroyed.

The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "IN_USNG_UTM16.SHP":

"The purpose of this data layer is to enable and promote the use of US National Grid as an 'attributed polygon overlay' over other feature data layers in paper and digital maps."

An ESRI shapefile named "IN_USNG_UTM16.SHP" was downloaded by personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) on November 8, 2012, from the following Web site: <http://mississippi.deltastate.edu/> . The shapefile was opened in ESRI ArcGIS 10.0 for visual inspection and to validate the projected coordinate system of UTM Zone 16, NAD 1983. It was then renamed as "NATIONAL_GRID_1000M_IN.SHP" to conform to internal naming conventions of the IGS.
