Description:
Abstract:
WIND_TURBINES_USGS_IN.SHP shows the locations of utility-scale wind turbines within Indiana, as of October 8, 2018. The data were extracted from the original source data of the "United States Wind Turbine Database" (USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP, ver 1.2, October 2018). Attributes include federal program identification numbers, date of first operational power production, technical specifications and size of the turbine, project names and information, turbine and total project capacity, and imagery basemaps used to visually inspect and adjust final locational positions.

The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP":

"This dataset provides locations and technical specifications of wind turbines in the United States, almost all of which are utility-scale. Utility-scale turbines are ones that generate power and feed it into the grid, supplying a utility with energy. They are usually much larger than turbines that would feed a homeowner or business. The regularly updated database has wind turbine records that have been collected, digitized, and locationally verified. Turbine data were gathered from the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Digital Obstacle File (DOF) and Obstruction Evaluation Airport Airspace Analysis (OE-AAA), the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and the United States Geological Survey (USGS), and were merged and collapsed into a single data set. Verification of the turbine positions was done by visual interpretation using high-resolution aerial imagery in ESRI ArcGIS Desktop. A locational error of plus or minus 10 meters for turbine locations was tolerated. Technical specifications for turbines were assigned based on the wind turbine make and models as provided by manufacturers and project developers directly, and via FAA datasets, information on the wind project developer or turbine manufacturer websites, or other online sources. Some facility and turbine information on make and model did not exist or was difficult to obtain. Thus, uncertainty may exist for certain turbine specifications. Similarly, some turbines were not yet built, not built at all, or for other reasons cannot be verified visually. Location and turbine specifications data quality are rated and a confidence is recorded for both. None of the data are field verified."

Purpose:
WIND_TURBINES_USGS_IN.SHP was produced to provide a Esri point shapefile of the locations of utility-scale wind turbines within Indiana. The data were extracted from the original source data of the "United States Wind Turbine Database" (USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP, ver 1.2, October 2018).

The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP":

"The purpose of this information is to provide a regularly updated, publicly available, spatially referenced, national dataset made up almost entirely of utility-scale wind turbine locations and their technical specifications. An appropriate use of the data would be for scientific analysis, research or for general interest for the public. Identification of turbines that have been retrofitted, repowered, decommissioned, and/or removed is a continual ongoing effort; thus, the dataset may contain turbines that were previously verified and subsequently removed."

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP":

"Turbine data points were spatially verified in aerial imagery to confirm or edit their correct position. The map scale used while verifying and digitizing turbines depended on location, need, and imagery availability. Authors used aerial imagery with a typical assessment map scale of 1:2,000 to 1:5,000, none of the spatial verification was done at a map scale smaller than 1:5,000. Uncertainty may exist for certain turbine locations as indicated in confidence turbine location field (t_conf_loc). Uncertainty in turbine specifications was indicated in the confidence of attribute field (t_conf_atr)."

Logical_Consistency_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP":

"No formal logical accuracy tests were conducted."

Completeness_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP":

"Data set is considered complete for the information presented, as described in the abstract. It is regularly updated and turbines will be added and removed over time, and characteristics might be altered over time as well. Users should be aware that the location data was based on a snapshot of time; turbines could have been removed after that time or built since the image date. None of the data are field verified."

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The following is excerpted from metadata provided with the original source data set named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP":

"The wind turbine points were horizontally verified with aerial imagery as specified in the image source attribute. NAIP provides 1 meters ground sample distance orthoimagery to within plus or minus 6 meters to true ground at a 95-percent confidence level. The Bing Maps Aerial basemaps and Digital Globe imagery have a variable resolution and accuracy based on image source, type, and location. The Bing Maps Aerial basemaps horizontal accuracy for CONUS is estimated to be 0.3m to 0.03m. Digital Globe imagery is estimated to be 0.3m to 0.03m."

IGWS personnel downloaded an Esri shapefile named "USWTDB_v1_2_20181001.SHP" from the USGS web page for the "United States Wind Turbine Database" (<https://doi.org/10.5066/F7TX3DN0>, ver 1.2,) on October 8, 2018. The file was loaded into Esri ArcMap and 1,207 wind turbines within Indiana were selected (attribute field and value, 'T_STATE = IN'). The selected features were then exported and saved to an Esri shapefile named "WIND_TURBINES_USGS_IN.SHP" to conform to internal naming conventions of the IGWS. The file was then projected from the original Geographic coordinate system (GCS, NAD 1983) to Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM, NAD 1983) coordinate system to conform to internal publication standards of the IGWS.
