This data set is the most recent harvest of county-based data from local government sources, as part of the ongoing Indiana Data Sharing Initiative (IDSI) program. It was provided to personnel of the Indiana Geological and Water Survey (IGWS) by Indiana Geographic Information Office (IGIO) personnel on April 12, 2018, (harvested during February and March of 2018).

NOTE: As of this update (20180412), new attribute fields are now included in the data structure for the ISDI framework layers (land parcels, street centerlines, address points, and governmental boundaries). The new attribute information includes improved street address information better suited for geocoding, property classification codes and descriptions, and tax district numbers. The additional attribute fields have been added with information that was obtained by personnel of the IGIO from land and property tax assessment records provided by the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF, "Real Property 2017 - Pay 2018" data records).

Description:
Abstract:
COUNTY_GOVERNMENT_BOUNDARIES_IGIO_IN is an Esri file geodatabase polygon feature class that contains governmental boundaries maintained by county agencies in Indiana, provided by personnel of Indiana Geographic Information Office (IGIO) on April 12, 2018. These data were compiled by IGIO as part of the Indiana Data Sharing Initiative (IDSI) between Indiana Geographic Information Council (IGIC), Indiana Geographic Information Office (IGIO), Indiana Geological and Water Survey (IGWS) and participating Indiana counties to provide the most accurate framework data (including address points, street centerlines, land parcels, and governmental boundaries) for the citizens of Indiana. The attributes include boundary names, descriptions, and the date of harvest from each county provider.
Purpose:
This data set was developed to provide accurate framework data (including address points, street centerlines, land parcels, and governmental boundaries) for Indiana, as part of the Indiana Data Sharing Initiative (IDSI) of the Indiana Geographic Information Office (IGIO).

Process_Description:
IGWS personnel received an Esri file geodatabase named "ISDI_201803.GDB" that contained a feature class named "County_Govt_Boundary" from IGIO personnel on April 12, 2018. "County_Govt_Boundary" was loaded into Esri ArcCatalog 10.5 and the data were examined for completeness. It was then exported to an Esri polygon feature class named "COUNTY_GOVERNMENT_BOUNDARIES_IGIO_IN" within an Esri file geodatabase named "COUNTY_GOVERNMENT_BOUNDARIES_IGIO_IN.GDB" to conform to IGWS naming conventions.
