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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code 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.
