Working with USDA Soils Databases in ArcGIS
Track: Natural Resources Management
Authors: Steve Peaslee
The Soil Data Development Toolbox is a suite of ArcTools designed to serve as the front end for gSSURGO, a USDA soils database. The toolbox helps users develop soil map layers and reports without having to understand the complexities of this relational database. The gSSURGO data is contained a file geodatabase that combines all vector, raster and attribute data in a single, standardized package that offers excellent performance whether coverage is for a single county or the entire country.
