 Accessing & Downloading SSURGO Soils Data

As of June 2013, the Soil Data Mart site was completely deactivated, making hyperlinks from other applications or documents to Soil Data Mart no longer valid (including some found on CUGIR, and associated metadata). After this date all capabilities of Soil Data Mart (with minor exceptions) were made available through Web Soil Survey. Unfortunately, stable links directly to county level data sets are no longer possible from CUGIR.

To access SSURGO data:

  • Go to the Web Soils Survey site
  • Click "Download Soils Data" tab
  • Click "Soil Survey Area (SSURGO)" and specify state and county
  • Scroll down and cilck the download link for the .zip file
