Land Use EPA This raster dataset comes from the National Land Cover Database (NLCD), 2006 version. It represents land cover across the contiguous 48 states, circa 2006. Each 30-meter-square pixel has been classified using a standard land cover classification scheme, and some of these categories have been aggregated further according to procedures outlined in EPA's Report on the Environment (www.epa.gov/roe). Data were originally processed and compiled by the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium (MRLC), a U.S. federal inter-agency group, based on Landsat satellite imagery.

Dominant Soil Hydrologic Group NRCS A hydrologic group is a grouping of soils that have similar runoff potential under similar storm and cover conditions. This layer displays the dominant hydrologic group for each map unit, based on composition percentage of each map unit component. Soils are categorized as either in group A, B, C, and D or one of three dual classes: A/D, B/D, and C/D. This data comes from NRCS's Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) Database, served by Esri as a WMS service.

WMS
Dominant Soil Drainage Class NRCS This service displays the dominant drainage class for each map unit, based on composition percentage of each map unit component. Soils are categorized as either Very Poorly Drained, Poorly Drained, Somewhat Poorly Drained, Moderately Well Drained, Well Drained, Somewhat Excessively Drained or Excessively Drained. This data comes from NRCS's Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) Database, served by Esri as a WMS service.
