Technical Assistance to Develop Remote Sensing/Terrain Analysis Methods and Models for Predicitive Digital Soil Mapping in Support of North Dakota Soil Survey Updates: The purpose of this agreement is to improve the accuracy, quality, detail and usefulness of soil surveys in North Dakota for use by the public. Specifically, the intent of this agreement is to develop methods and models, utilizing the latest technology available in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing and terrain analysis, for updating soil surveys in North Dakota in an efficient and accurate manner and to improve their application and relevance for a broad spectrum of users. The Recipient will be responsible for assisting in the development and testing of GIS-based methods and models to update and improve the accuracy, detail, quality, and usefulness of North Dakota Soil Surveys. This ?enhanced soil survey? will be developed by 1) incorporating GIS, terrain analyses and remote sensing techniques into routine soil survey maintenance projects; 2) evaluating products for a variety of soil survey applications including precision agriculture, conservation planning, land evaluation, irrigation water management and animal waste management; and 3) comparing costs and benefits of an enhanced soil survey with published Order 2 and field developed Order 1 Soil Surveys. The project will apply GIS, remote sensing and terrain analyses procedures to sites where ancillary data, such as 10 meter Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), Order 1 and 2 Soil Surveys, surficial geology, native vegetation maps, production data, etc. are available. Some examples of remote-sensing data include LIDAR-derived DEMs, Landsat imagery, Hyperspectral imagery, etc. The location and extent of the study area(s) is negotiable, but it must be located in North Dakota in one or more of the following Major Land Resource Areas: 53A, 53B, 54, 55A, 55B, and 56. The following steps and/or products, including responsibilities, are anticipated during the duration of the agreement: It is anticipated that approximately $60,000 will be available for this program in FY2004-2005. The available funding for subsequent years is not fixed and may vary considerably from the current funding level. Amendments to agreement(s) may be developed upon availability of funding in follow-on years (approximately a five-year period).
