I have created this map of the Karst sinkholes in Florida using ESRI ArcGIS 9.3. I have also used this map as a basis for a time-lapse video, which will be posted on this webpage shortly. The State of Florida footprint, and the county footprints were created from some generic GIS data that I had found online, years ago; the sinkhole GIS data 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 underground water of karst topography carves our impressive channels and caves that are susceptible to collapse from the surface.
