NRCS Soil Data Viewer 6.0 – Compatible with ArcGIS 10.0
By Danielle Evans, Natural Resources Conservation Service

Soil Data Viewer is an extension in ArcMap that allows a user to work with the SSURGO soils data to create thematic maps. This tool can also be used as a standalone application, but only to create tabular reports. Soil Data Viewer contains processing rules to enforce appropriate use of the data.

There are now four versions of Soil Data Viewer compatible with various versions of ArcGIS available for download from the NRCS Soil Data Viewer Website. The most recent version is certified for ArcGIS 10.0, Windows XP Professional, and Windows 7.
