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.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
