The Website Started 1996, one of the first soil survey WebPages. Provided update data, farmland lists, series info, data, soil description database, geophysical info Over 2 million hits since inception now SIS (Soil Information System) Developed in 1998 with RC&D one of first GIS projects to provide soil interpretive data using the updated mapping. Hundreds of copies of the CD sent out.

GPS and GIS in Field The (Original)Soil Tunnel (aka Wormhole) Developed by two volunteers from U.K (Nicky Shirt and Michael Bonner. Educational display taken to schools to teach about soils, curriculum written and interns trained.

Network of over 38 well sites setup in SE Mass. Town request (Board of Health Officers) / Watershed Groups Assist w/ new Soil Series definition and NASIS data population Data confirms and assists with revisions of established Soil Series definitions Info used in Hydric Soil Identification (National & Regional Keys)

Title 5 - Soil Evaluator Workshops Began in 1994 and continued through current. Sessions eductated professionals on soil evaluation for septic system siting.

Money went to District to hire contract mappers to accelerate the survey. Rapid Carbon Assessment (RaCA) Current National Initiative to

determine soil organic carbon content. Assessment uses a spectrometer to analyze the soil samples collected.

Environmental Review Team (ERT) Purpose Provide local officials, boards, and commissions with accurate natural resource information and interpretations to make wise land use decisions Project Areas: Quivet Neck, Dennis Viall Farm, Rehoboth Cole Property, Carver

Tidal flats at Quivet Neck, Dennis Hydric Soil Workshops The Workshop from hell Barnstable MA. New England Hydric Soils Technical Committee (NEHSTC)

Geo-referenced Site and Field Notes All data collected during the survey has been geo-located and the point data made available to users via WWW (Google Earth). Data includes pedon descriptions, lab sampling data, water table and climate sites, GPR

investigations, field notes. Web Soil Survey ( Also: Soil Data Mart (
