I have created this map of the Karst sinkholes in Florida using ESRI ArcGIS 9.3. The sinkhole GIS data (depicted as yellow double-circles) is somewhat dated, and was downloaded from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection webpage about the Florida Geological Survey, Subsidence Incident Reports. The webpage a that link will prompt your for a valid email address, before you can download any GIS data about Karst Sinkholes, which they refer to as subsidence incidents.

The subject sinkhole of this webpage, in Dunedin, was geographically created from a variety of sources, the local news for the description of the incident and Google Earth, to obtain the latitude and longitude of the sinkhole location. This data was then entered into a new ESRI shapefile that I specifically created to match the State's sinkhole shapefile, and brought into this map.

Best Sinkhole Repair Methods | Earth Tech
Best Sinkhole Repair Methods. In general, a hole that’s very small and very stable in an open area can simply be filled with dirt and restored with ground cover. A larger hole in an open area is likely to need excavation down to some sort of bedrock for stability, and then a filling operation with layers of rock, gravel, dirt, and possibly grout.

GTA offers comprehensive Karst services. Karst is a problematic subsurface condition (a geohazard) that occurs in areas underlain by limestone and dolomite bedrock, which are present in most of the mid-Atlantic states. The bedrock "dissolves" over time, leaving voids in the bedrock, which allows the overlying soils to erode into the voids.

About this Webpage

I enjoy working with GIS data and try to find new things to keep my skills honed with.

Within these pages, I am performing some GIS tasks about the Karst Sinkholes in Florida. After seeing the news about the 100 foot-side sinkhole that had opened up behind a house in Windermere, Florida, I decided to see what was available for historic sinkhole data and started developing this webpage, complete with a time-lapse video of the historic locations of the sinkholes.
