Idaho Soil Surveys

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with state agricultural experiment stations and other federal and state agencies, has been making soil surveys and publishing them since 1899. These surveys furnish soil maps and interpretations needed in giving technical assistance to farmers and ranchers; in guiding other decisions about soil selection, use, and management; and in planning research and disseminating the results of the research. They are also used in educational programs about soil use and conservation. Sound scientific and technical standards are used in a nationwide system of soil classification, nomenclature, interpretation, and publication."

Most of the surveys issued since 1957 "contain soil maps printed on a photomosaic base" with scales of 1:24,000, 1:20,000, or 1:15,840. For an index to all published soil surveys, see: List of Printed Soil Surveys
