Description:
Abstract:
LANDSURVEY_STATE_POLY_IN is a 1:24,000-scale polygon shapefile with a projection of Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) North American Datum (NAD) 1983 zone 16.
Purpose:
This shapefile was created as a framework layer defining the state boundary of Indiana in polygon format. The information is intended for geographic display or analysis at a scale of 1:24,000 or smaller.
Supplemental_Information:
This shapefile was derived from a predecessor coverage named "IN_LANDSURVEY." IN_LANDSURVEY is a digital representation of land survey features as represented on the USGS 1:24,000 digital raster graphic (DRG) series. ESRI ArcEdit 8.1 and ESRI ArcView 3.2 were used to extract the following shapefiles from IN_LANDSURVEY:
LANDSURVEY_COUNTY_LINE_IN, LANDSURVEY_COUNTY_POLY_IN, LANDSURVEY_SECTIONS_LINE_IN, LANDSURVEY_SECTIONS_POLY_IN, LANDSURVEY_STATE_LINE_IN, LANDSURVEY_STATE_POLY_IN, LANDSURVEY_TOWNSHIPS_LINE_IN, and LANDSURVEY_TOWNSHIPS_POLY_IN.

NOTE -- This shapefile is identical to a version named "INDIANA_STATEBDY_24K_IGS_L". This metadata file is a copy of the metadata for "INDIANA_STATEBDY_24K_IGS_L" that has had minor edits. The shapefile and metadata were renamed to conform to a file-naming convention for a project funded outside the IGS.

Process_Description:
IN_LANDSURVEY was opened in ESRI ArcEdit and queried for layer_1 = "STATE-BDY." The resulting coverage was built for polygons. The PAT was opened in Tables and attributes were dropped. A field named "State" was added and populated with the word "INDIANA." The resulting coverage was opened in ESRI ArcView and converted to a polygon shapefile named "INDIANA_STATEBDY_24K_IGS_P."
