The World Water Online (WWO) group in the ArcGIS Resource Center has 12 new web map applications based on the SSURGO soil survey database. These apps show soil characteristics that are useful for hydrologic modeling, such as drainage class, available water storage, water table depth, and ponding frequency. The hydrologic group code, which classifies soils based on infiltration rate, can be used to calculate curve number and model how much rain falling in an area will become runoff.
On April 2, 2013, an informal working group of twenty-five (including four Esri staffers) participated in a 1.5-hour webinar to discuss the development of a new, improved version of the Arc Marine Data Model (also known as the “Marine Data … Continue reading
