USDA Soil Data Access API

The service from the U.S. Department of Agriculture provides data from soil surveys to support agricultural planning and geographic information about farming activities. Data provide geolocation and temporal data, allowing applications to generate reports against the data for specific locations and regions within selected time periods. The service frees the soil survey data from its conventional download formats to allow real-time access to selected data elements.

API methods support submission of queries accessing data from USDA soil survey results, with potential for selecting particular geographic areas of interest, time periods, and subsets of data. Methods allow retrieval of raw data or mapping layers to support uses in reporting and analysis as well as visual mapping applications. ArcGIS format is supported.
