GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing
|Title: "CGIA: Soils, Detailed County Surveys" (198? - 200?)|
Description: This data set is a digital soil survey and is the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was collected by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and attribute data. The map data are in a county-wide format, based on 7.5 minute quadrangle basemaps and include a detailed, field verified inventory of soils and nonsoil areas that normally occur in a repeatable pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at the scale mapped.
This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions which rely on the knowledge of soil conditions and a digital file for use in a Geographic Information System (GIS).
See the README.txt file for a list of counties available and their corresponding file names.
