Success Stories

Perhaps the most important measure of success is patron use of MSDI data. Below we cite specialized uses and additional successes in the form of stewardship activities, reports, and the like.

  • SSURGO data is used by MDT to evaluate sites for limitations regarding road and right-of-way requirements.
  • The SSURGO soils data has been included in the Montana Natural Heritage Program's PotWet Soils Database (potential wetlands data).
