This dataset is a remote link to the USDA/NRCS STATGO web site. State general soil maps made by generalizing the detailed soil survey data. The level of mapping is designed to be used for broad planning and management uses covering state, regional, and multi-state areas. STATSGO data are designed for use in a Geographic Information System (GIS). STATSGO data are available in the USGS Digital Line Graph (DLG-3) optional distribution format. NRCS soil map symbols are not normally carried within the DLG-3 file; however, these map symbols are made available as a unique ASCII file when NRCS soils data are distributed in the DLG-3 format. STATSGO data are also available in ArcInfo 7.0 coverage and GRASS 4.13 vector formats.
