The Soil Survey Geographic Database (SSURGO) contains soil information that soil scientists have collected over the course of a century. The information can be displayed in tables or as maps and is available for most areas in the United States and the Territories, Commonwealths, and Island Nations.

The Digital General Soil Map of the United States (STATSGO2) is a broad-based inventory of soil and non-soil areas in the continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The level of mapping is designed for broad planning and management uses covering state, regional, and multi-state areas. STATSGO2 is comprised of general soil association units and is maintained and distributed as a spatial and tabular dataset.
