National Extension Web-mapping Tool (or NEWT), is the key in efforts to make spatial data available within the Cooperative Extension System. NEWT requires no GIS experience to use. NEWT provides access to relevant spatial data at a variety of scales (national, state, county) in useful formats (maps, tables, graphs),

The Rapid Carbon Assessment (RaCA) was initiated by the USDA-NRCS Soil Science Division in 2010 with the following objectives:
- To develop statistically reliable quantitative estimates of amounts and distribution of carbon stocks for U.S. soils under various land covers and to the extent possible, differing agricultural management.
- To provide data to support model simulations of soil carbon change related to land use change, agricultural management, conservation practices, and climate change.
- To provide a scientifically and statistically defensible inventory of soil carbon stocks for the U.S.

For each map listed, we provided an Adobe Acrobat file (PDF), a compressed Postscript file (ZIP) for plotter output, and metadata files in both HTML and text formats. Short descriptions of each map are available in the abstract portion of the metadata files.
Overview maps (PDF format) showing the results of our aerial surveys are available for the region (Arizona & New Mexico) and for specific areas.
