Online Soil Survey Manuscripts

Published by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), soil surveys "furnish soil maps and interpretations needed in giving technical assistance to farmers and ranchers; in guiding other decisions about soil selection, use, and management; and in planning research." The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Web site provides free access to online soil surveys from many U.S. states and the Caribbean area. Wisconsin, for example, has six counties represented with reports that are hundreds of pages long and include any relevant maps, each of which can be downloaded. Even though not all areas of the nation are available, the increasing existence of such reports is welcomed by professionals seeking quick access to valuable information.
