A new smartphone app, SoilWeb, is available as a free download from the California Soil Resource Lab for both iPhone and Android users that combines online soil survey information with the GPS capabilities of smartphones to access soil survey information.


The SoilWeb app is a portable version of the UC Davis California Soil Resource Lab’s Web-based interface to digital soil survey data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service. Because the app provides soil survey information in a mobile form, it is particularly useful for those working in the field.
