Looking for Maps!

If you have any relatives or friends that might have worked in one of Indiana's historic coal mines, you might have a "gold mine" of information in your attic or closets.

The Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) is always in search of old coal mine maps and records to update the Indiana Coal Mine Information System. Many undocumented mine maps may be found in libraries, historical society's files, or personal files of former mine employees. If you know of any such maps or old mine company records (including photographs), please contact Licia Weber (e-mail: at the IGS, 611 N. Walnut Grove, Bloomington, IN 47405. Any maps or records that are brought to our attention will be checked against our existing inventory. If any are found to be new and unrecorded information, they will be carefully scanned and the data entered into our system. All maps and records will be returned to their owners.

The Indiana Geological Survey hosts the vector data sets for the interactive map and maintains the server hardware and software.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation provides funding to develop and upate the CMIS interactive mapping Web site and the development of GIS layers and metadata.

The Indiana Department of Labor, Bureau of Mines provides access to active and abandoned underground mine map images for scanning purposes.

University Information Technology Services (UITS), Indiana University, hosts the imagery that is available on the map viewer.
