ANNOTATION: This CD contains digital, vector-based ARC/Info coverages made from maps of abandoned underground coal mines in southwestern Indiana. The coverages are vecotrized reproductions of mine workings shown on original company mine maps, which were collected from the Indiana Bureau of Mines and Mining (IBMM). This data set was compiled as a component of the Indiana Coal Mine Infomation System (CMIS), an integrated Geographic Information System (GIS) and Database Management System (DBMS), created to compile, catalog, archive, analyze and distribute spatial and tabular coal mine data.

Notes: Publications in the Indiana Geological Survey Open-File series have been inconsistently named using a variety of series titles including "Open-File Report," "Open-File Map," and "Open-File Study." Prior to 1994, a publication in this series was generally referred to as an "Open-File Report" (but not always). To help reduce confusion created by these inconsistencies, the IGS now refers to every publication in the Open-File series as an "Open-File Study." To be entirely correct in writing a bibliographic reference for a publication, one should use the series name and number that appears on the publication itself.

One compact disk (CD) containing vectorbased GIS coverages (ARC/INFO format) of underground mine workings for mines in Southwest Indiana.
