The Natural Resource Decision Support System (NRDSS): Creation of a 9.2 ArcGIS Server Website and a SQL Server 2005 ArcSDE 9.2 Database for the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR)
In the fall of 2007, GeoSpatial Services (GSS) accepted a contract from the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) to develop a 9.2 ArcGIS Server application. This application was to be a web mapping site that would support Soils SURvey GeOgraphic Database (SSURGO) soils data interaction and allow for querying of a subset of the SSURGO dataset for the State of Minnesota. In order to make management of the site possible, a number of applications and scripts were created. This paper describes the functionalities and tools designed and built in the project.
