Summary

This dataset is a 30-meter resolution raster of estimated extent of subsurface tile drains, developed from tabular data of state-level estimates of agricultural land drained by tiles combined with geospatial cropland and soils in 12 Midwest States (SD, NE, KS, MN, IA, MO, WI, IL, MI, IN, OH, and KY). This dataset was created from the following four sources: 1) state-level acreages of agricultural "land drained by tiles" from the 2012 Census of Agriculture; 2) the extent of cultivated cropland from the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) 2011; 3) the extent of poorly and moderately drained soils from the State Soil Geographic Database (STATSGO) database Version 2; and 4) state administrative boundaries. The area of drained land was evenly [...]
