GRANIT Metadata for Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) database for New Hampshire

Title: Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) database for New Hampshire
Time Period of Content: 09/1995 - 01/2009 Initial Publication Date: 01/2009
Originator: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service
Abstract:
This data set is a mosaic of county digital soil surveys 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 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. The descriptive attributes were populated from the National Soil Information System relational database using the NRCS Soil Data Viewier and default aggregation methods, which gives the proportionate extent of the component soils and their properties. The county surveys may not be edge matched to adjacent SSURGO certified soil surveys.
