Description:
Abstract:
This data set is a digital soil survey and is the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was collected by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. Hydric Soils types A (map units that are all hydric soils or have hydric soils as a major component) and B (map units with inclusions of hydric soils or have wet spots) are attributed in this file. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and attribute data. The map data are in a county-wide format, based on 7.5 minute quadrangle basemaps and include a detailed, field verified inventory of soils and nonsoil areas that normally occur in a repeatable pattern on the landscape and that can be cartographically shown at the scale mapped.
Purpose:
This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions which rely on the knowledge of soil conditions and a digital file for use in a Geographic Information System (GIS).

SSURGO depicts information about soil features on or near the surface of the Earth. The data were collected as part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey.

The following is taken from the US Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Service, Technical Guide, Section II-A-2, June 1991, Hydric Soils, Union County, North Carolina.

Hydric Codes (HC): 1=Hydric soils, only because of saturation for a significant period during the growing season 2=Hydric soils that are frequently flooded for long or very long periods during the growing season 3=Hydric soils that are ponded for long or very long periods during the growing season

Vegetation Codes (VC): 1=Hydric soils that support woody vegetation under natural conditions 2=Hydric soils that do not support woody vegetation under natural conditions

Hydric soils in this county cannot be farmed under natural conditions without removing woody vegetation or hydrology manipulation.

Some map units and included soils listed as hydric soils in this county may not meet the definition of hydric soils and wetlands because the hydrology has been altered through drainage or other manipulations.

A.) Map units that are all hydric soils or have hydric soils

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute accuracy is tested by manual comparison of the source with hardcopy plots and/or symbolized display of the map data on an interactive computer graphic system. Selected attributes that cannot be visually verified on plots or on screen are interactively queried and verified on screen. In addition, the attributes are tested against a master set of valid attributes. All attribute data conform to the attribute codes in the signed classification and correlation document and amendment(s) and are current as of the date of digitizing. Discrepancies in the original soils survey are resolved by NRCS personnel.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Using ESRI's ARC/INFO GIS software, the dataset was built for arc and polygon topology using the "build" command, then cleaned using the "clean" command. Topology has not been edited since the last build or clean.

Certain node/geometry and topology (GT) polygon/chain relationships are collected or generated to satisfy topological requirements. (The GT-polygon corresponds to the soil delineation). Some of these requirements include: chains must begin and end at nodes, chains must connect to each other at nodes, chains do not extend through nodes, left and right GT-polygons are defined for each chain element and are consistent throughout, and the chains representing the limits of the file (neatline) are free of gaps. The tests of logical consistency are performed using vendor software. Data within a specified tolerance of the neatline are snapped to the neatline.

All internal polygons are tested for closure with vendor software and are checked on hard copy plots. All data are checked for common soil lines (i.e., adjacent polygons with the same label). Quadrangles are edgematched within the soil survey area.

Completeness_Report:
These data represent the locations and types of soils in Union County, North Carolina as mapped by the US Dept. of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service. Each soil area is labeled with a soil type. Hydric soils were added after individual quadrangles were joined into a single county coverage. All soil boundaries were approved by the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

A map unit is a collection of areas defined and named the same in terms of their soil and/or nonsoil areas. Each map unit differs in some respect from all others in a survey area and is uniquely identified. Each individual area is a delineation. Each map unit consists of one or more components.

Soil scientists identify small areas of soils or nonsoil areas (special soil features) that have properties and behavior significantly different than the named soils in the surrounding map unit. Other inclusions that have a minimal effect on use and management, or those that could not be precisely located, were not mapped.

Specific limits were established on the classification of soils, design, and name of map units, location of special soil features, and the percentages of allowable inclusions. These limits are outlined in U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1975. Soil Taxonomy: A basic system of soil classification for making and interpreting soil surveys. Soil Conserv. Serv., U.S. Dep. Agric. Handb. 436.; U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1992. Keys to Soil Taxonomy. SMSS Technical Monograph No. 19. Soil Surv. Staff, Soil Conserv. Serv.; U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1993. National Soil Survey Handbook, title 430-VI. Soil Surv. Staff, Soil Conserv. Serv.; and U.S. Department of Agriculture. 1993. Soil Survey Manual. Soil Surv. Staff, U.S. Dep. Agric. Handbook 18.

The actual composition and interpretive purity of the map unit delineations were based on statistical analysis of field observations and transect data. Adherence to National Cooperative Soil Survey standards and procedures is based on peer review, quality control, and quality assurance. Quality control is outlined in the memorandum of understanding for the soil survey area and in documents that reside with the Natural Resources Conservation Service state soil scientist. Four kinds of map units are used in soil surveys: consociations, complexes, associations, and undifferentiated groups.

Consociations - Consociations are named for the dominant soil. In a consociation, delineated areas are dominated by a single soil taxon and similar soils. At least one half of the pedons in each delineation are of the same soil components so similar to the named soil that major interpretations are not affected significantly. The total amount of dissimilar inclusions of other components in a map unit generally does not exceed about 15 percent if limiting and 25 percent if nonlimiting. A single component of dissimilar limiting inclusion generally does not exceed 10 percent if very contrasting.

Complexes and associations - Complexes and associations are named for two or more dissimilar components with the dominant component listed first. They occur in a regularly repeating pattern. The major components of a complex cannot be mapped separately at a scale of about 1:24,000. The major components of an association can be separated at a scale of about 1:24,000. In each delineation of either a complex or an association, each major component is normally present, though their proportions may vary appreciably from one delineation to another. The total amount of inclusions in a map unit that are dissimilar to any of the major components does not exceed 15 percent if limiting and 25 percent if nonlimiting. A single kind of dissimilar limiting inclusion usually does not exceed 10 percent.

Undifferentiated Groups - Undifferentiated groups consist of two or more components that do not always occur together in the same delineation, but are included in the same named map unit because use and management are the same or similar for common uses. Every delineation has at least one of the major components and some may have all of them. The same principles regarding proportion of inclusions apply to undifferentiated groups as to consociations.

Minimum documentation consists of three complete soil profile descriptions that are collected for each soil added to the legend, one additional per 3,000 acres mapped; three 10 observation transects for each map unit, one additional 10 point transect per 3,000 acres.

A defined standard or level of confidence in the interpretive purity of the map unit delineations is attained by adjusting the kind and intensity of field investigations. Field investigations and data collection are carried out in sufficient detail to name map units and to identify accurately and consistently areas of about 5 acres.

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Soils were marked on USGS 1:24,000-scale orthophoto stable bases which meet National Map Accuracy Standards, using a best estimate with reference to surrounding features. Boundaries drawn were digitized and check plots used to ensure correct boundary location, within a line width.

The accuracy of these digital data is based upon their compilation to basemaps that meet National Map Accuracy Standards. The difference in positional accuracy between the soil boundaries and special soil features locations in the field and their digitized map locations is unknown. The locational accuracy of soil delineations on the ground varies with the transition between map units.

For example, on long gently sloping landscapes the transition occurs gradually over many feet. Where landscapes change abruptly from steep to level, the transition will be very narrow. The digital map elements are edge matched between data sets. The data along each quadrangle edge are matched against the data for the adjacent quadrangle.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Field procedures for the second order soil survey included plotting of soil boundaries determined by field observation and by interpretation of remotely sensed data. Boundaries were verified at closely spaced intervals, and the soils in each delineation were identified by traversing and transecting the landscape. Soil scientists described and sampled the soils, analyzed samples in the laboratory, and statistically analyzed the data. Delineations were compiled into the County soils survey publication, on orthophoto base maps.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
NRCS also determined the proper course of action in reference to discrepancies found in the creating of a countywide digital file. These corrections were returned to CGIA for inclusion into the final digital product, and include things like; label corrections, adding labels, deleting labels, and correction of hydric soil types. The base maps were orthophoto 1/3 1:24,000 quad maps. They were manually digitized and the linework plotted onto paper. These check plots were overlain on the originals and checked for accuracy on a light table. The coverages were then labeled and the label plots overlain onto the base maps to check consistency. The individual base maps were map-joined and the neatlines dissolved. Base map errors in linework and labels were resolved by NRCS. The county boundaries was digitized off the mylar bases, and the county coverage was clipped to its extent. The "A" and "B" hydric types were also added.
