GIS Dataset Title State Soil Geographic (STATSGO) Database, Susquehanna River Basin
Dataset Description This dataset is a digital general soil association map for the Susquehanna River Basin developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. It consists of a broad based inventory of soils and nonsoil areas that occur in a repeatable pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at the scale mapped. The soil maps for STATSGO are compiled by generalizing more detailed soil survey maps. The soil map units are linked to attributes in the Map Unit Interpretations Record relational data base which gives the proportionate extent of the component soils and their properties.
