Available CD Products
Printed, hardcopy soil survey publications are generally no longer available in Vermont. The Web Soil Survey offers viewable digital maps on-line and is the main source for ready-made, seamless soil maps covering the whole state that are current.
Note: The County CD products will no longer be updated - limited copies are still available. These CDs were created to replace the published county surveys prior to the launch of the Web Soil Survey site.
Theme CDs will be kept current as staff time allows.
Theme-based CDs provide pre-made maps, data and explanations in a Vermont context. These CDs are particularly useful to individuals who are not well versed in soils terminology and find the vast array of data that is available bewildering. Theme-based CDs compile all relevant soils information on a specialized topic in a user-friendly format conveniently on a CD.
