The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) developed the Spatial Data Collection Standards [PDF] to support spatial data collection (data that describes the location and/or shape of a feature on the earth) by IDEM staff and external source data collectors and submitters. Adherence to these standards will ensure the accuracy, validity, consistency, comprehensiveness, and relevancy of IDEM’s spatial data. The document provides both IDEM staff and the private sector standards and guidelines for collecting spatial data. The procedures and standards outlined in the document must be applied to spatial data collection work performed by or for IDEM.
