SoilWeb for the iPhone
Submitted by dylan on Mon, 2010-01-11 22:12.
SoilWeb for the iPhone is a portable version of our online interface to USDA-NRCS digital soil survey data. The application uses the GPS built into the iPhone to acquire your current location, and then submits an HTTP request to our server via the SoilWeb API. A graphical summary of the soils mapped at your current location is presented on-screen, with links to details through our online soil survey, or via the USDA-NRCS official series description (OSD) archive. SoilWeb for the iPhone can be downloaded free of charge from the iPhone App Store. If you are using a computer, then you will likely want to use our Google Earth interface to the these data. Here is a link to a presentation on how the application works.
