    doesnt actually tell yah much.....soil types can change in a matter of feet......around here you can go from nice loam, to high alkaline or pure clay that will not support plant life to pure sand and mixes there of.....and you wont have walked a half mile.....

    that map is of more interest to geologists and about useless for growing plants......

    Wow. What's the resolution on that? And how was the data collected? I can only imagine that it must be by satellite -- I'd like to see the algorithm that can determine soil orders from a little bit of albedo information, though. haha

    I'm taking a course that covers a fair amount of biometeorology and remote sensing, so I'd definitely be interested to hear any additional information about this.

    More power to you if you have plants with location data within a few feet...
