NRCS Web Soil Survey- New tools for better plans

NRCS has been the leader in soils information for decades. Soils information published by NRCS has been used by federal, state, and local governments and the private sector to provide conservation plans, assess building site suitability, and numerous other applications. In the recent past, this valuable information has been provided in paper copy soil surveys, and most recently on compact disk. Now, the Web Soil Survey provides the public continual access to the most up-to-date soils information on the web. With a few simple clicks, site specific soils data is available in tabular form as well as high-quality maps, along with interpretations for a multitude of uses (eliminating the need for an entire county’s worth of data to be sifted through).
