Description:

Abstract: This map data layer represents the Section Text for the City of Bloomington, Indiana. The Township and Section Lines data layer was digitized from Monroe County quarter-section maps and USGS topographic quadrangle maps. The mapped geographic area includes 86.3 square miles of central Monroe County in Indiana. Spatial coordinate system is Indiana State Plane West, zone 1302, NAD83.
Purpose: The Section Text map layer provides locational reference for the City of Bloomington Geographic Information System. Basemap data layers are accessed by personnel in most City departments for basic applications such as viewing, querying, and map output production.
Supplemental Information: The Section Text layer covers the entire mapped area, but does not include complete township boundaries or the section lines within them.

Access Constraints:

The City of Bloomington shall make every effort to provide public access to all disclosable records which it may possess in electronic format, including its GIS electronic map database, to the extent practicable and feasible given the resources at the City's disposal to implement such access. Data and map request forms are available from the Point of Contact. Fees may charged for data distribution in order to recover the costs associated with providing the information in the manner requested. The City of Bloomington reserves the right to refuse a request for inspection or copying of an electronic database if compliance with said request would unreasonably interfere with the ongoing operations of the City by requiring an inordinate diversion of City manpower, materials or equipment use, or would necessitate utilization of an outside contractor.

Data Quality Information

Section Index

Attribute Accuracy:

Attribute Accuracy Report: complete.

Logical Consistency Report:

The Section Text map layer covers most of the Township and Section Lines map layer area. A few sections around the perimeter of the mapped area are not covered by section text.

Completeness Report:

City of Bloomington GIS data coverage extends outward from the Municipal Boundary to include the City of Bloomington Service Area. A few sections around the perimeter of the mapped area are not covered by section text.

Positional Accuracy:

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: The Township and Section Lines map layer was created by digitizing a combination of Monroe County quarter-sectioin maps and USGS topographic quadrangle maps. The quarter-section maps were at 1:4800 scale and the topo quads were at 1:24000 scale. Although the township and section lines were largely taken from the road edge of pavement map layer (from aerial photos, at 100' scale), many lines passed through open territory. Also, roads in the areas of downtown Bloomington and Indiana University do not generally follow section lines. Map layer is accurate to 1:24000 scale where USGS topo quads were used to identify section lines and 1:4800 scale where quarter-section maps were used.
