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. The information was prepared by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and computerized attribute data. The map data are in a 7.5-minute quadrangle format and include a detailed, field verified inventory of soils and nonsoil areas that normally occur in a repeatable pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at the scale mapped. A special soil features layer (point and line features) is optional. This layer displays the location of features too small to delineate at the mapping scale, but they are large enough and contrasting enough to significantly influence use and management. The soil map units are linked to attributes in the Map Unit Interpretations Record relational database, which gives the proportionate extent of the component soils and their properties. This data coverage circa 2005. Additional and current SSURGO data is available at:
