Summary

SSURGO depicts information about the kinds and distribution of soils on the landscape. The soil map and data used in the SSURGO product were prepared by soil scientists as part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey.

 

Description

This data set is a digital soil survey and generally is the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was prepared by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and computerized attribute data. The map data are in a soil survey area extent format and include a detailed, field verified inventory of soils and miscellaneous areas that normally occur in a repeatable pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at the scale mapped. A special soil features layer (point and line features) is optional. This layer displays the location of features too small to delineate at the mapping scale, but they are large enough and contrasting enough to significantly influence use and management. The soil map units are linked to attributes in the National Soil Information System relational database, which gives the proportionate extent of the component soils and their properties.

Data quality report - Topological consistency

Evaluation method

Certain node/geometry and topology GT- polygon/chain relationships are collected or generated to satisfy topological requirements (the GT-polygon corresponds to the soil delineation). Some of these requirements include: chains must begin and end at nodes, chains must connect to each other at nodes, chains do not extend through nodes, left and right GT-polygons are defined for each chain element and are consistent throughout, and the chains representing the limits of the file are free of gaps. The tests of logical consistency are performed using vendor software. All internal polygons are tested for closure with vendor software and are checked on hard copy plots. All data are checked for common soil lines (i.e., adjacent polygons with the same label). Edge locations generally do not deviate from centerline to centerline by more than 0.01 inch. The boundary of this survey is matched to the adjacent SSURGO certified surveys of Bracken and Robertson Counties, Kentucky, Harrison County, Kentucky, Scott County, Kentucky, Carroll, Gallatin, and Owen Counties, Kentucky and Clermont County, Ohio. Feature edges match those of the Bracken and Robertson Counties, Kentucky survey only. Feature labels do not match.

Data quality report - Completeness omission

Measure description

A map unit is a collection of areas defined and named in terms of their soil components or miscellaneous areas or both. Each map unit differs in some respect from all others in a survey area and each map unit has a symbol that uniquely identifies the map unit on a soil map. Each individual area, point, or line so identified on the map is a delineation. Soil Scientists identify small areas of soils or miscellaneous areas that have properties and behavior significantly different than the named soils in the surrounding map unit. These minor components may be indicated as special features. If they have a minimal effect on use and management, or could not be precisely located, they may not be indicated on the map. A map unit has specified kinds of soils or miscellaneous areas (map unit components), each with a designated range in proportionate extent. Map units include one or more kinds of soil or miscellaneous area. Miscellaneous areas are areas that have little or no recognizable soil. Specific National Cooperative Soil Survey standards and procedures were used in the classification of soils, design and name of map units, and location of special soil features. These standards are outlined in Agricultural Handbook 18, Soil Survey Manual, 1993, USDA, NRCS; Agricultural Handbook 436, Soil Taxonomy, 1995, USDA, NRCS; and all Amendments; Keys to Soil Taxonomy, (current issue) USDA, NRCS; National Soil Survey Handbook, title 430-VI,(current issue) USDA, NRCS. The actual composition and interpretive purity of the map unit delineations were based on data collected by scientists during the course of preparing the soil maps. Adherence to National Cooperative Soil Survey standards and procedures is based on peer review, quality control, and quality assurance. Quality control is outlined in the memorandum of understanding for the soil survey area and in documents that reside with the Natural Resources Conservation Service state soil scientist. Four kinds of map units are used in soil surveys: consociations, complexes, associations, and undifferentiated groups. Consociations - Consociations are named for the dominant soil. In a consociation, delineated areas use a single name from the dominant component in the map unit. Dissimilar components are minor in extent. The soil component in a consociation may be identified at any taxonomic level. Soil series is the lowest taxonomic level. A consociation that is named as a miscellaneous area is dominantly that kind of area and minor components do not significantly affect the use of the map unit. The total amount of dissimilar inclusions of other components in a map unit generally does not exceed about 15 percent if limiting and 25 percent if nonlimiting. A single component of a dissimilar limiting inclusion generally does not exceed 10 percent if very contrasting. Complexes and associations - Complexes and associations consist of two or more dissimilar components that occur in a regularly repeating pattern. The total amount of other dissimilar components is minor extent. The following arbitrary rule determines whether complex or association is used in the name. The major components of an association can be separated at the scale of mapping. In either case, because the major components are sufficiently different in morphology or behavior, the map unit cannot be called a consociation. In each delineation of a complex or an association, each major component is normally present though their proportions may vary appreciably from one delineation to another. The total amount of inclusions in a map unit that are dissimilar to any of the major components does not exceed 15 percent if limiting and 25 percent if nonlimiting. A single kind of dissimilar limiting inclusion usually does not exceed 10 percent. Undifferentiated groups - Undifferentiated groups consist of two or more components that are not consistently associated geographically and, therefore, do not always occur together in the same map delineation. These components are included in the same named map unit because their use and management are the same or very similar for common uses. Generally they are grouped together because some common feature, such as steepness, stoniness, or flooding, determines their use and management. If two or more additional map units would serve no useful purpose, they may be included in the same unit. Each delineation has at least one of the major components, and some may have all of them. The same principles regarding the proportion of minor components that apply to consociations also apply to undifferentiated groups. The same principles regarding proportion of inclusion apply to undifferentiated groups as to consociations. Minimum documentation consists of three complete soil profile descriptions that are collected for each soil added to the legend, one additional per 3,000 acres mapped; three 10 observation transects for each map unit, one additional 10 point transect per 3,000 acres. A defined standard or level of confidence in the interpretive purity of the map unit delineations is attained by adjusting the kind and intensity of field investigations. Field investigations and data collection are carried out in sufficient detail to name map units and to identify accurately and consistently areas of about 4 acres.

Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy

Measure description

Attribute accuracy is tested by manual comparison of the source with hard copy plots and/or symbolized display of the map data on an interactive computer graphic system. Selected attributes that cannot be visually verified on plots or on screen are interactively queried and verified on screen. In addition, the attributes are tested against a master set of valid attributes. All attribute data conform to the attribute codes in the signed classification and correlation document and amendment(s).

Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy

Dimension horizontal

Measure description

The accuracy of these digital data is based upon their compilation to base maps that meet National Map Accuracy Standards at a scale of 1 inch equals 1,000 feet. The difference in positional accuracy between the soil boundaries and special soil features locations in the field and their digitized map locations is unknown. The locational accuracy of soil delineations on the ground varies with the transition between map units. For example, on long gently sloping landscapes the transition occurs gradually over many feet. Where landscapes change abruptly from steep to level, the transition will be very narrow. Soil delineation boundaries and special soil features generally were digitized within 0.01 inch of their locations on the digitizing source. The digital map elements are edge matched between data sets. The data along each quadrangle edge are matched against the data for the adjacent quadrangle. Edge locations generally do not deviate from centerline to centerline by more than 0.01 inch.

Description

The Natural Resources Conservation Service State Soil Scientist or delegate verified that the labels on the digitized soil map units link to map units in the tabular database, and certified the joined data sets for release to the Soil Data Warehouse. A system assigned version number and date stamp were added and the data were copied to the data warehouse. The tabular data for the map units and components were extracted from the data warehouse and reformatted into the soil data delivery data model, then stored in the Soil Data Mart. The spatial data were copied to the Soil Data Mart without change. Tabular data has been revised from the previous version on the Soil Data Mart to include minor components for each mapunit; and the mapunit Nontechnical Soil Descriptions and pasture and hayland suitability groups.

Description

1:12,000 scale ratioed film positives were made from the publication negatives. Ratioed positives were manually compiled to stable-base overlays registered to 1:12,000 scale orthophoto quarter quadrangles (NAD83). Soil map unit delineation overlays were raster scanned by Midwest Graphics in Kenosha, Wisconsin at a resolution of 300 dpi. Digitizing, editing, and review for adherence to SSURGO standards were conducted by cartographic staff at the NRCS Regional SSURGO Digitizing Center in Salina, Kansas. Raster editing, labeling, edge matching, and vector conversion were done in ArcGIS version 8.3. The extent of the soil survey boundary was matched to the adjacent SSURGO certified soil surveys of Bracken and Robertson Counties, Kentucky; Harrison County, Kentucky; Scott County, Kentucky; Carroll, Gallatin, and Owen Counties, Kentucky; and Clermont County, Ohio. For quality control, a ten percent quality assurance review was done by a senior soil scientist at the Major Land Resource Area Office in Lexington, Kentucky. The spatial data, metadata and tabular files were evaluated using ArcGIS 8.3 and the May 2004 ArcInfo SSURGO Evaluation AMLs provided by the NRCS National Cartography and Geospatial Center (NCGC). The certified data were uploaded to the NRCS Soil Data Warehouse for archiving and distribution.

Overview Description

Entity and Attribute Overview

Map Unit Delineations are closed polygons that may be dominated

by a single soil or miscellaneous area component plus allowable

similar or dissimilar soils, or they can be geographic mixtures

of groups of soils or soils and miscellaneous areas.

 

The map unit symbol uniquely identifies each closed map unit

delineation. Each symbol corresponds to a map unit name. The map

unit key is used to link to information in the National Soil

Information System tables.

 

Map Unit Delineations are described by the National Soil

Information System database. This attribute database gives the

proportionate extent of the component soils and the properties for

each soil. The database contains both estimated and measured data

on the physical and chemical soil properties and soil

interpretations for engineering, water management, recreation,

agronomic, woodland, range, and wildlife uses of the soil.

 

The National Soil Information System database contains static

metadata. It documents the data structure and includes such

information as what tables, columns, indexes, and relationships

are defined as well as a variety of attributes of each of these

database objects. Attributes include table and column

descriptions and detailed domain information.

 

The National Soil Information System database also contains a

distribution metadata. It records the criteria used for selecting

map units and components for inclusion in the set of distributed

data.

Description

Abstract

 

This data set is a digital soil survey and generally is the most

detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National

Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was prepared by digitizing

maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base

and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely

sensed and other information.

 

This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and

computerized attribute data. The map data are in a soil survey area

extent format and include a detailed, field verified inventory

of soils and miscellaneous areas that normally occur in a repeatable

pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at

the scale mapped. A special soil features layer (point and line

features) is optional. This layer displays the location of features

too small to delineate at the mapping scale, but they are large

enough and contrasting enough to significantly influence use and

management. The soil map units are linked to attributes in the

National Soil Information System relational database, which gives

the proportionate extent of the component soils and their properties.

Purpose

 

SSURGO depicts information about the kinds and distribution of

soils on the landscape. The soil map and data used in the SSURGO

product were prepared by soil scientists as part of the National

Cooperative Soil Survey.

Supplemental Information

 

Digital versions of hydrography, cultural features, and other

associated layers that are not part of the SSURGO data set may be

available from the primary organization listed in the Point of

Contact.

Use Constraints

 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation

Service, should be acknowledged as the data source in products

derived from these data.

 

This data set is not designed for use as a primary regulatory tool

in permitting or citing decisions, but may be used as a reference

source. This is public information and may be interpreted by

organizations, agencies, units of government, or others based on

needs; however, they are responsible for the appropriate

application. Federal, State, or local regulatory bodies are not to

reassign to the Natural Resources Conservation Service any

authority for the decisions that they make. The Natural Resources

Conservation Service will not perform any evaluations of these maps

for purposes related solely to State or local regulatory programs.

 

Photographic or digital enlargement of these maps to scales greater

than at which they were originally mapped can cause misinterpretation

of the data. If enlarged, maps do not show the small areas of

contrasting soils that could have been shown at a larger scale. The

depicted soil boundaries, interpretations, and analysis derived from

them do not eliminate the need for onsite sampling, testing, and

detailed study of specific sites for intensive uses. Thus, these data

and their interpretations are intended for planning purposes only.

Digital data files are periodically updated. Files are dated, and

users are responsible for obtaining the latest version of the data.

Data Quality  ▼►

Attribute Accuracy

Attribute Accuracy Report

 

Attribute accuracy is tested by manual

comparison of the source with hard copy plots and/or symbolized

display of the map data on an interactive computer graphic system.

Selected attributes that cannot be visually verified on plots or

on screen are interactively queried and verified on screen. In

addition, the attributes are tested against a master set of valid

attributes. All attribute data conform to the attribute codes in

the signed classification and correlation document and amendment(s).

Logical Consistency Report

 

Certain node/geometry and topology GT- polygon/chain relationships

are collected or generated to satisfy topological requirements

(the GT-polygon corresponds to the soil delineation). Some of these

requirements include: chains must begin and end at nodes, chains

must connect to each other at nodes, chains do not extend through

nodes, left and right GT-polygons are defined for each chain

element and are consistent throughout, and the chains representing

the limits of the file are free of gaps. The tests of logical

consistency are performed using vendor software. All internal

polygons are tested for closure with vendor software and are checked

on hard copy plots. All data are checked for common soil lines (i.e.,

adjacent polygons with the same label). Edge locations generally do

not deviate from centerline to centerline by more than 0.01 inch.

The boundary of this survey is matched to the adjacent SSURGO

certified surveys of Bracken and Robertson Counties, Kentucky,

Harrison County, Kentucky, Scott County, Kentucky, Carroll, Gallatin,

and Owen Counties, Kentucky and Clermont County, Ohio. Feature

edges match those of the Bracken and Robertson Counties, Kentucky

survey only. Feature labels do not match.

Completeness Report

 

A map unit is a collection of areas defined and named in terms of

their soil components or miscellaneous areas or both. Each map

unit differs in some respect from all others in a survey area and

each map unit has a symbol that uniquely identifies the map unit

on a soil map. Each individual area, point, or line so identified

on the map is a delineation.

 

Soil Scientists identify small areas of soils or miscellaneous areas

that have properties and behavior significantly different than the

named soils in the surrounding map unit. These minor components

may be indicated as special features. If they have a minimal effect

on use and management, or could not be precisely located, they may

not be indicated on the map.

 

A map unit has specified kinds of soils or miscellaneous areas

(map unit components), each with a designated range in

proportionate extent. Map units include one or more kinds of soil

or miscellaneous area. Miscellaneous areas are areas that have little

or no recognizable soil.

 

Specific National Cooperative Soil Survey standards and procedures

were used in the classification of soils, design and name of map

units, and location of special soil features. These standards are

outlined in Agricultural Handbook 18, Soil Survey Manual, 1993,

USDA, NRCS; Agricultural Handbook 436, Soil Taxonomy, 1995,

USDA, NRCS; and all Amendments; Keys to Soil Taxonomy,

(current issue) USDA, NRCS; National Soil Survey

Handbook, title 430-VI,(current issue) USDA, NRCS.

 

The actual composition and interpretive purity of the map unit

delineations were based on data collected by scientists during

the course of preparing the soil maps. Adherence to National

Cooperative Soil Survey standards and procedures is based on

peer review, quality control, and quality assurance. Quality

control is outlined in the memorandum of understanding for the

soil survey area and in documents that reside with the Natural

Resources Conservation Service state soil scientist. Four kinds

of map units are used in soil surveys: consociations, complexes,

associations, and undifferentiated groups.

 

Consociations - Consociations are named for the dominant soil.

In a consociation, delineated areas use a single name from the

dominant component in the map unit. Dissimilar components are

minor in extent. The soil component in a consociation may be

identified at any taxonomic level. Soil series is the lowest

taxonomic level. A consociation that is named as a miscellaneous

area is dominantly that kind of area and minor components do not

significantly affect the use of the map unit. The total amount of

dissimilar inclusions of other components in a map unit generally

does not exceed about 15 percent if limiting and 25 percent if

nonlimiting. A single component of a dissimilar limiting inclusion

generally does not exceed 10 percent if very contrasting.

 

Complexes and associations - Complexes and associations consist

of two or more  dissimilar components that occur in a regularly

repeating pattern. The total amount of other dissimilar components

is minor extent. The following arbitrary rule determines whether

complex or association is used in the name. The major components

of an association can be separated at the scale of mapping. In

either case, because the major components are sufficiently different

in morphology or behavior, the map unit cannot be called a

consociation. In each delineation of a complex or an association,

each major component is normally present though their proportions

may vary appreciably from one delineation to another. The total

amount of inclusions in a map unit that are dissimilar to any of

the major components does not exceed 15 percent if limiting and

25 percent if nonlimiting. A single kind of dissimilar limiting

inclusion usually does not exceed 10 percent.

 

Undifferentiated groups - Undifferentiated groups consist of two

or more components that are not consistently associated

geographically and, therefore, do not always occur together in

the same map delineation. These components are included in the

same named map unit because their use and management are the same

or very similar for common uses. Generally they are grouped together

because some common feature, such as steepness, stoniness, or

flooding, determines their use and management. If two or more

additional map units would serve no useful purpose, they may be

included in the same unit. Each delineation has at least one of the

major components, and some may have all of them. The same principles

regarding the proportion of minor components that apply to

consociations also apply to undifferentiated groups. The same

principles regarding proportion of inclusion apply to

undifferentiated groups as to consociations.

 

Minimum documentation consists of three complete soil profile

descriptions that are collected for each soil added to the legend,

one additional per 3,000 acres mapped; three 10 observation

transects for each map unit, one additional 10 point transect per

3,000 acres.

 

A defined standard or level of confidence in the interpretive

purity of the map unit delineations is attained by adjusting the

kind and intensity of field investigations. Field investigations

and data collection are carried out in sufficient detail to name

map units and to identify accurately and consistently areas of

about 4 acres.

Positional Accuracy

Horizontal Positional Accuracy

Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report

 

The accuracy of these digital data is based upon their

compilation to base maps that meet National Map

Accuracy Standards at a scale of 1 inch equals 1,000

feet. The difference in positional accuracy between the

soil boundaries and special soil features locations in the

field and their digitized map locations is unknown. The

locational accuracy of soil delineations on the ground varies

with the transition between map units.

 

For example, on long gently sloping landscapes the transition

occurs gradually over many feet. Where landscapes change

abruptly from steep to level, the transition will be very

narrow. Soil delineation boundaries and special soil features

generally were digitized within 0.01 inch of their locations on

the digitizing source. The digital map elements are edge matched

between data sets. The data along each quadrangle edge are

matched against the data for the adjacent quadrangle. Edge

locations generally do not deviate from centerline to centerline

by more than 0.01 inch.

were raster scanned by Midwest Graphics in Kenosha, Wisconsin

at a resolution of 300 dpi. Digitizing, editing, and review for

adherence to SSURGO standards were conducted by cartographic

staff at the NRCS Regional SSURGO Digitizing Center in Salina,

Kansas. Raster editing, labeling, edge matching, and vector

conversion were done in ArcGIS version 8.3. The extent of the

soil survey boundary was matched to the adjacent SSURGO certified

soil surveys of Bracken and Robertson Counties, Kentucky;

Harrison County, Kentucky; Scott County, Kentucky; Carroll,

Gallatin, and Owen Counties, Kentucky; and Clermont County, Ohio.

For quality control, a ten percent quality assurance review was

done by a senior soil scientist at the Major Land Resource Area

Office in Lexington, Kentucky. The spatial data, metadata and

tabular files were evaluated using ArcGIS 8.3 and the May 2004

ArcInfo SSURGO Evaluation AMLs provided by the NRCS National

Cartography and Geospatial Center (NCGC). The certified data were

uploaded to the NRCS Soil Data Warehouse for archiving and

distribution.

Process Description

 

The Natural Resources Conservation Service State Soil Scientist or

delegate, upon completion of data quality verification, determined

that the tabular data should be released for official use. A

selected set of map units and components in the soil survey legend was

copied to a staging database, and rating values for selected

interpretations were generated. The list of selected interpretations is

stored in the database table named sainterp.

Process Description

The Natural Resources Conservation Service State Soil Scientist or delegate verified that the labels on the digitized soil map units link to map units in the tabular database, and certified the joined data sets for release to the Soil Data Warehouse. A system assigned version number and date stamp were added and the data were copied to the data warehouse. The tabular data for the map units and components were extracted from the data warehouse and reformatted into the soil data delivery data model, then stored in the Soil Data Mart. The spatial data were copied to the Soil Data Mart without change.

 

Tabular data has been revised from the previous version on the Soil Data Mart to include minor components for each mapunit; and the mapunit Nontechnical Soil Descriptions and pasture and hayland suitability groups.

Overview Description

Entity and Attribute Overview

 

Map Unit Delineations are closed polygons that may be dominated

by a single soil or miscellaneous area component plus allowable

similar or dissimilar soils, or they can be geographic mixtures

of groups of soils or soils and miscellaneous areas.

 

The map unit symbol uniquely identifies each closed map unit

delineation. Each symbol corresponds to a map unit name. The map

unit key is used to link to information in the National Soil

Information System tables.

 

Map Unit Delineations are described by the National Soil

Information System database. This attribute database gives the

proportionate extent of the component soils and the properties for

each soil. The database contains both estimated and measured data

on the physical and chemical soil properties and soil

interpretations for engineering, water management, recreation,

agronomic, woodland, range, and wildlife uses of the soil.

 

The National Soil Information System database contains static

metadata. It documents the data structure and includes such

information as what tables, columns, indexes, and relationships

are defined as well as a variety of attributes of each of these

database objects. Attributes include table and column

descriptions and detailed domain information.

 

The National Soil Information System database also contains a

distribution metadata. It records the criteria used for selecting

map units and components for inclusion in the set of distributed

data.
