Spatial Data

CropScapeCropScape is a geospatial data service, which offers advanced tools such as interactive visualization, web-based data dissemination, geospatial queries, and automated data delivery to systems such as Google Earth. It was developed in cooperation with the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems at George Mason University.

VegScapeVegScape is a geospatial data service, which offers automated updates of vegetative conditions. It delivers interactive vegetation indices that enable quantification of U.S. crop conditions for exploring, visualizing, querying, and disseminating via interactive maps. It was developed in cooperation with the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems at George Mason University.

VegScapeCrop Condition and Soil Moisture Analytics (Crop-CASMA) is a web-based geospatial application. It is designed to remotely sense geospatial soil moisture and vegetation index data derived from NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) missions to assess U.S. soil moisture condition and crop vegetation conditions.

Crop Progress and Condition Gridded Layers are gridded geospatial datasets which are fully synthetic representations of confidential, county level data. These new data are available for U.S. corn and soybeans, and eventually cotton and wheat.

Disaster Analysis - USDA-NASS can now monitor agricultural disasters in near real-time and provide quantitative assessments using remotely sensed data and geospatial techniques. View disaster assessments in geospatial data format, reports, and metadata as available.

Land Use Strata for Selected States - The USDA-NASS area sampling frame delineates all parcels of land for the purpose of sampling. The area frame is constructed by visually interpreting satellite imagery to divide a state into stratification classes (strata) based on percent of land used in cultivation. View the most recent land use strata map for each state.
