Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Digital Soil Mapping in soil science, or "predictive soil mapping," is the computer-assisted production of digital maps of soil type and soil properties. Digital Soil Mapping involves the creation and population of spatial soil information by the use of field and laboratory observational methods coupled with spatial and non-spatial soil inference systems. It applies pedometrics, the use of mathematical and statistical models that combine information from soil observations with information contained in correlated environmental variables and remote sensing images. The international WORKING GROUP ON DIGITAL SOIL MAPPING defines "Digital Soil Mapping" as "the creation and the population of a geographically referenced soil databases generated at a given resolution by using field and laboratory observation methods coupled with environmental data through quantitative relationships." DSM can rely upon, but is distinct from, soil mapping involving manual delineation of soil boundaries by field soil scientists.show more
