Presentation Transcript
  • Contrast the general and detailed evaluations
  • Understand what is to assessed in the detailed evaluation process
  • Compare manuscripts and databases
  • Identify tools for assessing quality and consistency of data
how many surveys are in your territory
How many surveys are in your territory?
  • Use Chat Pod to provide your number.
detailed evaluation process
Detailed Evaluation Process

Prior to any soil survey updating activity, an evaluation of the map units overall condition of the original survey areas is required.

Evaluations are the first step in all project plans

Results of the Evaluation are used to complete the Project Plan

in your opinion what needs to be assessed in the detailed evaluation process for the project plan
In your opinion, what needs to be assessed in the detailed evaluation process for the project plan?
  • Use a chat poll.

  • pedon descriptions
  • transect data
  • tacit knowledge of those experienced in the area
  • notes of needed changes recorded in the office copy of the published soil
items to consider 610 03c
Items to consider 610.03c
  • map unit design/composition
  • soil delineations conform to landform positions
  • adequacy of the database to support interpretations
  • need for laboratory or other support data

nasis review

NASIS Review

Reviewing the map units and components within the Project

loading mlra data into nasis
Loading MLRA Data into NASIS

Overlap tables are to be populated with the MLRA and map units assigned to that MLRA

This should be the first step in developing the Project

step 1
Step 1:
  • Run thePangaeareports
  • No selected set is needed
  • Reports prompt for MLRA
step 2 components in excel
Step 2: Components in Excel

Export Reports can be sorted using Excel

step 3
Step 3
  • Save the results to your PC and import into Excel
step 4
Step 4
  • Now sort based on the acres to find Fayette has the greatest number of acres
compare components to benchmark
Compare components to benchmark
  • Should the high acre components be benchmark soils?
step 5 mapunit acres
Step 5: Mapunit acres?
  • Well, what about map units? We have reports for that – first formatted
step 6 formatted
Step 6: Formatted
  • Formatted and sorted by name
step 7 mapunits in excel
Step 7: Mapunits in Excel
  • Do you want to sort by acres?
step 8
Step 8
  • Fayette, 9 to 14 has the highest number of acres
  • The goal of update is to update the mapunits to a common standard
  • Identify the cost:benefit ratio
    • Fayette silt loam 9 to 14 or
    • Steep stony and rocky land?
  • These reports are used during the prioritizing of work load

NASIS reports are available to assist in the location of property voids or identify data population inconsistencies.

manuscript review

Manuscript Review

Reviewing map unit descriptions in comparison to NASIS population

process steps
Process Steps

Now you have identified map unit and components to be evaluated, next step:

  • Compare the Map Unit Descriptions to identify the map unit design for each map unit
  • Compare the Taxonomic Unit Descriptions to identify the component concept for each component
  • Review correlation documents
  • Compare the property and interpretation tables in the manuscript to identify potential over-rides
mud and tud
  • Just as a reminder this same review process should be completed on the TUD/OSD/Pedon.
  • What are the considerations of old pedons?
manuscript versus nasis review
Manuscript versus NASIS Review
  • Map unit concept is maintained in the manuscript. Manuscripts MUST be reviewed.
  • NASIS contains soil properties and was designed based on a map unit concept.
  • Original NASIS data was converted from the State Soil Survey Database (SSSD). SSSD data based on a series concept (SOI5)
what is a soi 5
What is a SOI-5?
  • The data entry form used to populate the State Soil Survey Database (SSSD)
soi 5 properties
SOI-5 Properties
  • There were 9 SOI-5s written for the Fayette series – this is the first IA0082
nasis and the soi 5
NASIS and the SOI-5
  • If you want to see the impact that the SOI-5 has on NASIS data you can run review the many new records that have been copied and pasted from the original data. You can then review the deviation in population of the many components
nasis and the soi 51
NASIS and the SOI-5
  • Review the ENG data for the IA0082 SIR and you will see slight deviations.
manuscript and nasis review
Manuscript and NASIS Review
  • Few states have updated NASIS to include manuscript information.
  • Manuscripts and NASIS should be critically reviewed dependent (not independently) of the other
map unit evaluation
Map unit evaluation
  • The map unit concept has been reviewed in several survey areas
  • What other issues should we consider now that you are familiar with the map unit?
analyze interpretation data

Analyze Interpretation data

Comparison of NASIS interpretations between similar named map units

step 1 load data
Step 1: Load Data
  • Load by mapunit name
step 2 run the report
Step 2: Run the report
  • MLRA –interp– Interpretation Comparison report
step 3 set parameters
Step 3: set parameters
  • Identify the interpretations to compare
step 4 review report
Step 4: Review report
  • The report identifies the area symbol and musym for each component sorted by musym
step 5 compare nasis to manuscript
Step 5: Compare NASIS to Manuscript
  • This is one report of many that will allow comparison of NASIS interpretations to the Manuscript interpretations
correlation documents

Correlation Documents

Review hard copy reports versus NASIS data

nasis correlation documents
NASIS Correlation Documents

Assuming correlation documentation is stored in NASIS, reports are available

analyze nasis correlation data
Analyze NASIS Correlation Data
  • Correlation reports should be reviewed as part of the evaluation process
ssurgo templates

SSURGO Templates

Use of SSURGO templates in assessing quality and consistency of data

ssurgo template
SSURGO Template

The SSURGO template is an export of the NASIS data and can be used to rapidly assess the MLRA tailored NASIS data

ssurgo template1
SSURGO Template

Data can be rapidly analyzed using the SSURGO template – MLRA Legend

NSSL “MO Access Data”

  • Access databases are available on the NSSL sharepoint site
pedon review

Pedon Review

Review of the county TUD, hardcopy pedon data, pedon databases

pedon data in nasis
Pedon data in NASIS
  • Load data into NASIS
  • Run the AnalysisPC export report
  • Manuscripts are the foundation of the update.
  • Mapunit concept is found in the manuscript – not NASIS
  • Correlation documents, both hardcopy and NASIS, should be used to understand map unit concepts
  • NASIS is a tool to store data and should be reviewed as part of the correlation process
  • GIS and NASIS data are tools to assist in the evaluation process
