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.
