Soil Surveys

Geospatial data for Massachusetts soil surveys that have been SSURGO certified are available either in UTM projection at the NRCS Geospatial Data Gateway or in Massachusetts state plane coordinate system at Massachusetts Geographic Information System (MASSGIS).

Web Soil Survey

The Web Soil Survey (WSS) provides agricultural producers, agencies, technical service providers, and others electronic access to relevant soil and related information needed to make land-use and management decisions. WSS allows online viewing of soil survey maps and reports. The new application greatly enhances access to information on soils.
