EDUCATION

Soil survey, soil mapping, is the process of classifying soil types and other soil properties in a given area and geo-encoding such information. It applies the principles of soil science, and draws heavily from geomorphology, theories of soil formation, physical geography, and analysis of vegetation and land use patterns. Primary data for the soil survey are acquired by field sampling and by remote sensing. Remote sensing principally uses aerial photography, but LiDAR and other digital techniques are steadily gaining in popularity. In the past, a soil scientist would take hard-copies of aerial photography, topo-sheets, and mapping keys into the field with them. Today, a growing number of soil scientists bring a ruggedized tablet computer and GPS into the field with them. The tablet may be loaded with digital aerial photos, LiDAR, topography, soil geodatabases, mapping keys, and more.

FUTURE PROJECTS

Remote Sensing in Soil Science

Remote sensing techniques offer fast access to information about soil conditions and have been applied over a number of regions worldwide for mapping physical and chemical properties of bare ground. However, in case of surfaces covered with vegetation i


Applications Invited
process of detecting and monitoring the physical characteristics of an area

Soil Taxonomy

Technology has provided opportunities to make more precise measurements, causing a major shift from qualitative definitions to quantitative ones to take place


Applications Invited
Soil classification is a window into knowledge about soils at a given moment in time.

GIS in Soil Science

The objectives of this study were to determine the degree of spatial variability of some soil physical and chemical properties,
