Description

On the soil suitability map, each mapping unit has a code consisting of an uppercase letter and a number. The letters stand for 25 different physiographical units. The numbers represent different elements of the landscape, categorised by bedrock, slope and gradient. Each mapping unit also corresponds to one or more soil types. There are 144 mapping units in total. They are grouped together into 18 different coloured categories on the map from the perspective of soil suitability. Agricultural criteria have primarily been used for this classification.
