Final Project Results

Updated June 19, 2020:
Work completed includes:
1. Rather than having all calculations done on the dominant (having the highest % of area) soil map unit, we now run calculations on a weighted average of the all map units in the area of interest. This provides a weighted average of erosion outputs, and runoff volume estimates over a larger proportion of the field. These outputs are used by the tool in subsequent calculations, and should better represent field properties and practices. This may be especially important for heterogeneous (rolling) fields.

2. Revise On-Field Ohio! results output. To more easily compare results of multiple crop management scenarios (which we want users to do), simplify outputs and user recordkeeping by showing RUSLE2 and nutrient descriptors along with associated results outputs.

3. The “clear” button on the google map (to identify the field) page should only clear an incorrect outline, NOT push the user all the way out of the map. Frustrating to have to identify a field multiple times.

4. Repaired "bugs" in fertilizer/manure application calculations
