Abstract : This report describes and provides basic instructions for using the Interactive Soils Information System, a user-friendly family of programs designed by the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Lab for efficient retrieval, analysis, and use of soils data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Soil Conservation Service. Recent developments include: another data base (SOI-6), the Map Unit Use File System (MUUFS) and the Computer-Aided Land Evaluation System (CALES) to access the new data base, and several new options within the Multiple Parameter Series Search (MPSS).
