This set of soils data consists of mineral depth, and three layers each of sand, clay, and rock fragment fractions. The soils data were obtained from Kern (2000), using methodology from Kern (1995) with corrected inconsistencies and gap filling from NRCS (1994).

This dataset contains generalized landcover data for the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA) determined agricultural extent of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. This dataset was subset into two shapefiles. The other half of this dataset covers PFRA agricultural areas of Alberta and British Columbia. The Landcover Generalization process was undertaken to solve rendering problems of the original vectorized landcover data due to its unwieldy/overwhelming size. LANDSAT 7 imagery used in the process was collected during the WGTPP. This landcover imagery has a 30 meter resolution and is stored in over 1,100 vectorized 1:50,000 map sheet tiles. The data requires over seven gigabytes of disc space. If the user wishes...

The glacial aquifer system of the United States encompasses all or parts of 25 states and is the most widely used supply of drinking water in the Nation (Maupin and Barber, 2005; Maupin and Arnold, 2010). A series of seven raster data sets were derived from a database of water-well drillers' records that was compiled in partial fulfillment of the goals of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Groundwater Availability and Use assessment program (U.S. Geological Survey, 2002). They contain hydrogeologic information for areas of the U.S. that are north of the southern limit of Pleistocene glaciation, including the total thickness of glacial deposits, thickness of coarse-grained sediment within the glacial deposits, specific-capacity...
