ATTENTION: Deactivation of Soil Data Mart downloads planned for April 24, 2013
has been postponed and will not occur for a couple of months. At that time the ability to download data will be incorporated into the Web Soil Survey
In order to deliver more consistent output, we are transitioning away from the Soil Data Mart.
The capability of downloading SSURGO data sets for whole soil survey areas, and STATSGO2 data will moved from Soil Data Mart to the
Web Soil Survey 3.0 release. Web Soil Survey also offers the ability for you to select an area of interest for which you can
download SSURGO data or generate thematic maps and tabular reports.
After deactivation of Soil Data Mart downloads, SSURGO (tabular and spatial where available) data for any area in the United States,
its possessions, or its trust territories will be available through the NRCS web sites Web Soil Survey
and Geospatial Data Gateway.
In addition, downloading national or state templates or US General Soil Map (STATSGO2) data will be available through
Web Soil Survey. The capability to select one or more
map units from a soil survey area and run the prewritten reports will remain active in Soil Data Mart for a limited time.
Complete deactivation of this Soil Data Mart site, including reports, will occur around June, 2013. After this date all the capabilities
of Soil Data Mart (with minor exceptions) will be available through Web Soil Survey.
NOTE: If you have created hyperlinks from other applications or documents to Soil Data Mart you will have to edit them to link to the
appropriate areas of Web Soil Survey. Be aware, however, that the capability to link to a specific report will not be available
with Web Soil Survey. Click here for instructions
ALSO: If you are receiving email notices of updates to the Soil Data Mart, your subscriptions will not be transferred to Web Soil Survey.
You will have to sign up for RSS feeds from Web Soil Survey 3.0 if you wish to continue receiving notices.
