About the Webinar

Discover how the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) has made accessing a wealth of air and water data simpler for the general public and developers. With the introduction of new RESTful API methods, in addition to tools like SOAP Webservice, Air, Water & Soil Plots, a Report Generator, and more, finding critical climate data is more streamlined than ever. We’ll cover the suite of products and tools the NRCS uses to support access to critical climate and water data.

The NRCS maintains a wealth of information in their air and water database (AWDB). From an extensive automated data collection system of snowpack data to water supply forecasts, climate indices, and more — the tools we cover will help you get the data you need.
