IndianaMap News – Layer Updates and New Additions

We have added four new layers and updated two older layers onto IndianaMap.

The two updated layers showing “Managed Lands” (Environment Folder) and “Recreation Trails” (Infrastructure Folder) were provided to the IGWS by personnel of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

The four new layers show “2016 Orthophotography,” “2016 NAIP imagery,” “Landsat Imagery Index,” and “Naloxone Providers.”

If you are a frequent user of these data, please use the links below to access the Layer Gallery to download data and metadata for each of these layers.

  • Managed Lands, 20180212 (1:24,000) – Shows natural and recreation areas which are owned or managed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. In addition, some lands are included that are owned by federal agencies, local agencies, non-profit organizations, and conservation easements. For additional information regarding these lands, persons should contact the IDNR Indiana Natural Heritage Data Center (317-232-4052). Attributes include property names, owners, managing entities, acreages, access, and other information. Provided by personnel of the Indiana Natural Heritage Data Center, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, on February 12, 2018.
  • Trails (IDNR), 20171221 (1:24,000) – Shows trails and associated attributes of public, off-road recreation, and transportation trails. It includes trails managed by federal, state, and local governments, as well as non-government organizations. Provided by personnel of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Outdoor Recreation (20171221).
  • Orthophotography of Indiana, (2016) – Shows orthophotography for 24 counties in central Indiana, collected during leaf-off conditions in 2016. The imagery is natural-color (4-band) orthophotography, with an established standard resolution of 1-foot. In 2016, seventeen counties chose the standard 1-foot resolution (Bartholomew, Boon, Brown, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Elkhart, Hamilton, Hendricks, Howard, Johnson, Marion, Marshall, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Starke, and Tipton). Seven counties chose to upgrade to imagery with 6-inch resolution (Fulton, Harrison, Jackson, Kosciusko, Monroe, Morgan, and Wabash). From 2016 to 2018, the State of Indiana is undertaking a 3-year program to acquire orthophotography (4-band RGBI, 1-foot resolution, option to buy up to 6-inch or 3-inch) for the entire state of Indiana. The program divides the state into three acquisition areas: center-portion – 24 counties (2016), eastern-portion – 37 counties (2017), and western-portion – 31 counties (2018). Please visit the following Web page of the Indiana Spatial Data Portal for more detailed information:
  • NAIP Imagery, (2016) – Shows imagery of the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) during the 2016 agricultural growing season in Indiana (from June 2016 through August 2016). The purpose of the program is to provide current information regarding agricultural conditions in support of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) farm programs. This imagery has a cell size of 60 cm by 60 cm. For more information, please visit the following URL:
  • LandSat Imagery Index, (2017) – Provides access to the archives of Landsat satellite imagery collected over the past 30 years in Indiana, organized by county. The archived imagery are available for download in GeoTIFF format (Landsat5 images are approximately 16 Mb and include 6 or 7 bands, Landsat8 images are approximately 45 Mb and include 10 bands of data). The archives are maintained and hosted by personnel of Purdue Terrestrial Observatory, Purdue University, as part of the project website named “IndianaView,” . Attributes include county name, a website URL which links to each county-based satellite imagery archive on the IndianaView website, and a listing of all dates (and type of satellite sensor used) of imagery capture.
  • Naloxone Providers ISDH, 20180226 – Shows the locations of 705 registered Naloxone Entities in Indiana. These registered entities can dispense naloxone to people without a prescription. A person seeking naloxone can ask the entity to use the state health commissioner’s “Statewide Standing Order.” The Statewide Standing Order, authorized by I.C 16-42-27, is renewed each year. Naloxone Entities must at all times remain compliant with Indiana law to act under the Statewide Standing Order, and abide by the attestations made on the optIN Registry website. All entities are also required to provide training for usage of naloxone, as well as to provide other available addictions resources within Indiana. Attribute information includes entity name, address, contact phone, contact email, and website URLs. NOTE: These data should not be considered completely current, as entities could potentially be added or removed from the registry since the last date of publication (20180226). Further, entities that temporarily run out of naloxone stock are temporarily removed from the live optIN Registry website, and are reinstated when the ISDH is notified that the entity has been resupplied with dosages. For the most current information about Naloxone Entities in Indiana, and other related online resources, please visit the ISDH optIN Registry website, .
