Local Food Compass Map

    The dynamic Esri-based map interface shows USDA and other federal investments in local and regional food systems since 2009, along with data such as farmers markets, wholesale markets, green schools, food hubs, and meat processors. Users can explore the map to see what's happening in their own local community, or learn how others are using federal support to build local food systems. Boundary filters include tribal land, congressional district, county, and zipcode. State summary reports include program/project description, recipient, funding, and year. Resulting reports can be downloaded as comma-separated values (CSV) format to import into MS Excel or other spreadsheet application.

    Land Use Strata - Selected States

      The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) area sampling frame is a delineation of all parcels of land for the purpose of later sampling the parcels. The area frame is constructed by visually interpreting satellite imagery to divide a state into homogenous land use areas (strata) based on percent cultivated. The strata are typically defined as low, medium or high percent cultivated, non-agricultural land, urban use, agri-urban, or water. This site provides links to download ESRI shape and symbology layer files, as well as low resolution JPEG or higher resolution PDF images for each state.

      RCA Report - Interactive Data Viewer

        This site supports the Soil and Water Resources Conservation Act (RCA) by providing data from a variety of sources, including data on the status and trends of natural resources, conservation efforts (funding and conservation practices applied), and the agricultural sector. Reports can be created at the State, Regional, or National level.

        Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD)

          The Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) from The National Map (TNM) defines the perimeter of drainage areas formed by the terrain and other landscape characteristics.
