A soil mapping describes the characteristics of the soils in a given area, classifies the soils according to a standard system of classification, plots the boundaries of the soils on a map, and makes predictions about the behavior of soils. The different uses of the soils and how the response of management affects them are considered.
Semi-detail soil mapping is for plantation.
Geoprecision tech- done, provides soil mapping for plantations (oil palm plantation, rubber plantation, and rice plantation). The information collected in a soil survey helps in the development of land-use plans and evaluates and predicts the effects of land use on the environment. Soil survey, soil mapping, is the process of classifying soil types and other soil properties in a given area and geo-encoding such information. We provide 4 types of soil survey:
1- Reconnaissance soil survey (Low Intensity)- Soil maps with associations and phases of Great Groups or Subgroups; land system maps, physiographic or contour maps, present land use, climatic zones, etc. The map is produced at the scale of 1:100,000 to 1:250,000.
2- Semi-detailed soil survey (Medium Intensity)- Soil maps showing series or associations of series; land system maps, physiographic units, topographic contour maps, present land use maps, etc. The map is produced at the scale of 1:25,000 to 1: 100,000.
3- Detailed soil survey (High Intensity) 1:10 000 to 1:25 000- Soil maps showing phases of soil series and soil complexes; detailed topographic maps, groundwater maps, present land use, etc. The map is produced at the scale of 1:10,000 to 1:25,000.
4- Very detailed soil survey (Very High Intensity)- Larger than 1:10 000- Soil maps showing special features or phases of soil series and occasionally soil complexes; detailed topographic maps with spot heights; cadastral maps; groundwater maps; present crops and vegetation etc. The map is produced at the scale larger than 1:10,000.
