Soil Explorer is an interactive mapping tool built on publicly available soil data from a variety of sources. Viewers can zoom in on a number of states and global regions, and explore data on soil moisture, temperature, drainage and many other facets. The Soil Explorer website, mobile apps, and content were developed by the Integrating Spatial Educational Experiences Network (lsee Network), a multi-state collaboration of university and USDA researchers, educators, and specialists.
