Soil Web App
Do you have a Smart Phone? Well we have an app you need to install! Its called Soil Web. Install this app on your web and GPS enabled Smart Phone and you’ll be able to access USDA NRCS Web Soil Survey data with a click. The application will find the map unit you are currently standing in and pop up the associated information, including official series descriptions!
The only word of caution we have is that you should remember this application may not be as up to date as Web Soil Survey itself. This is because a person must export the information from USDA NRCS Web Soil Survey to the Soil Web app; its not an automatic update. In areas where active updates are occuring you should check the version of the data you use. When in doubt, USDA NRCS Web Soil Survey always provides the most current and official data.
