I'm looking for a dataset which catalogues the locations of all (or many) of the sinkholes in Mexico (specifically Yucatan), but I haven't had any luck.

I kind of hoped USGS would have some of the data.

Preferably, the data should be in CSV, XML or JSON format, but I can work with other formats.

  • What's an example of a sinkhole?

    Have you contact their Mexican Geological there ?

I think you are speaking of cenotes.

If so, a shapefile of the locations of cenotes is available from the Territorial Ecological Planning Program of the State of Yucatan.
