Abstract:
The maps using data from the preliminary 1997 NRI for croplands deal with a variety of areas. These areas range from specific cultivated croplands, to erosion on cropland and changes in cropland. Also available to the user is data from 1992 and earlier. The general listing of maps created from this data are the following - General Cropland Maps Maps on Cropland Erosion and Conservation Maps on Erosion for Specific Crops Maps on Irrigated Cropland Maps Showing Trends in Cropland Use Maps on Specific Crops Crop Maps from the Census of Agriculture Tables More Cropland maps and tables are available from the National Agricultural Statistics Service, http://www.nass.usda.gov/ In general - When you click on an individual map, chart, or table on the subject index pages, you will get -- An "Explanation of Analysis," information that is essential to proper interpretation of the map. If you use our analysis products, please be aware of our disclaimer. A link to a downloadable Postscript file you can use to print a map. A link to the related state summary table. A link to the data file used to make the map. Data files are in pipe-delimited ASCII text format. The data file can be used with our GIS coverages to recreate the maps found on this site. Summary tables and data files are not available for all maps.

The National Resources Inventory covers non-federal land in the United States - some 75 percent of the country's land base - and is conducted every five years by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in cooperation with Iowa State University. It captures data from 800,000 statistically selected locations on land cover, land use, soil erosion, prime farmland soils, wetlands, habitat diversity, selected conservation practices, and other natural resource information. The information is statistically reliable for national, statewide, and multi-county use.
