Web Soil Survey provides planners, conservation organizations, state agencies, and landowners internet access to relevant soils information needed to make land use and management decisions. Web Soil Survey is a simple, yet powerful way to access and analyze Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) soil survey maps, interpretations and data.

During this workshop, we’ll explore the three easy steps that will allow you to access a soil map for your “area of interest”, create interpretive maps, review a variety of soils data and generate a customized report. Web Soil Survey is an alternative to traditional hardcopy publications that offers quicker delivery of information, provides the “official” copy of data, and allows you to obtain just the information you want. Additionally, the workshop will present a primer on New Hampshire soil / landscape relationships and an overview of useful soil related information available on the NH-NRCS website.

Information will be presented by Karen Dudley, NH-NRCS Technical Soil Services.
