Information about Nebraska Soils

Digital Soil Surveys - Digital soil data is available for all counties in Nebraska. This data can be accessed two ways.  The Web Soil Survey is an on-line mapping program providing access to the digital soils for an area (county, section, watershed).  Though this site you will be able to create maps and query the soil data information.  The Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) Database is accessed through the Soil Data Mart link.  This link provides access to directly download GIS ready soil data by soil survey area.

 

Web Soil Survey - Web Soil Survey (WSS) provides soil data and information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. It is operated by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and provides access to the largest natural resource information system in the world.

 

Soil Data Mart - The Soil Data Mart provides a mechanism to access our official data. It does not physically store the pre-packaged datasets, but instead generates them in real-time as requests are made by a customer. The Soil Data Mart will only provide access to the current version of data for a soil survey area.  Currently the Soil Data Mart only has file download capability for data delivery.  If a CD-ROM or DVD is needed, access the Geospatial Data Gateway.  The cost is $50 for a single CD-ROM or $100 for a single DVD disk which may contain one or more soil survey areas, depending upon file size.

 

 

 

 

County Soil Survey Publications - This section contains any surveys published as PDF files and available on the Web, including new

surveys as well as old ones dating back to 1899, if available.  This information is for reference only and should not be used as the official soil information.  Please visit the Web Soil Survey or Soil Data Mart sites to obtain the official soil information.
