GIS Software

Technical Service Providers (TSP) and other NRCS Conservation Partners may work on their GIS projects, using:

a. GeoAgro GIS - it's included in the TSP Support Program, and preconfigured to work with the NRCS. For more information, visit the GeoAgro GIS Support site

b. ArcMap or any other GIS that works with shapefiles. First, you will need to Download Land Unit Boundaries from the NRCS into GeoAgro GIS, and then, export to shapefiles.

GIS base layers

When a GeoAgro GIS project is setup, it is configured to download online layers: aerial imagery, topography, and soils.

Other base layers can be accessed online using:

the WMS standard

the WFS standard

or import layers as shapefiles
