Steps to download a published soil survey


  1. On your computer create a folder identifying the survey to be downloaded (e.g. “Guam Soil Survey 1988”); do not create subfolders as this will interfere with document internal hotlinks.
  2. Select the manuscript hotlink and “open” the PDF document
  3. “Save” the document to the folder you created (but DO NOT close it)
  4. Open the bookmarks icon (second icon down on the left side)
  5. “Open” and then “Save” all pages highlighted in “Blue” including the “General Soil Map(s)”, “Soil Legend –” and “Index to Map Sheets”.
  6. On the Index to Map Sheets page move the cursor to map sheet 1, “Open” the map and “Save” the map to your folder; repeat this procedure for each map sheet included in the survey.
  7. Close all pages. You may now access the survey from your own computer by opening the original PDF document.
