Input Dataset

NSW Soil Landscapes


Series of Soil Landscape maps and accompanying reports based
on standard 1:100,000 and 1:250,000 topographic sheets. These
provide an inventory of soil and landscape properties of their area
and identify major soil and landscape qualities and constraints.
The ‘Soil Landscape’ concept integrates soil and topographic
features into single units with relatively uniform land management
requirements. Soils are described in terms of soil materials in
addition to the Australian Soil Classification, the Great Soil Group
and the Northcote classification systems.
