GIS22: GIS Coverage Defining Soils (SSURGO) on Konza Prairie (1982-present)

Summary

Short name: 

GIS22

Abstract: 

The Konza Prairie soils dataset is derived from the USDA NRCS SSURGO soils definitions for Riley and Geary Counties (variant ca. 2012; soildatamart.nrcs.usda.gov/). The coverage contains MUSYM and Soil Names that correspond to the code. Additional and current SSURGO data is available from (soildatamart.nrcs.usda.gov/SSURGOMetadata.aspx) Associated metadata derived from NRCS SSURGO Metadata for: Riley County SSURGO Data - soildatamart.nrcs.usda.gov/Metadata.aspx?Survey=KS161&UseState=KS Geary County SSURGO Data -soildatamart.nrcs.usda.gov/Metadata.aspx?Survey=KS061&UseState=KS

These data are available to download as zipped shapefiles (.zip), compressed Google Earth KML layers (.kmz), and associated EML metadata (.xml).

Data sources: 

GIS220: Konza Prairie SSURGO Soils: Konza Prairie Soils contains 1:24,000 soils polygons for the Konza Prairie Biological Station. The coverage was created by clipping and joining SSURGO quad coverages. MUSYM code differences across the Riley/Geary county line were reconciled to the Geary Co. code designations. These data originated from SSURGO certified coverages. This data set is a digital soil survey and generally is the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey.
