Soil Landscapes of Central and Eastern NSW

This map is a compilation of all 40 published soil landscape maps that cover central and eastern NSW, based on standard 1:100,000 and 1:250,000 topographic sheets. The mapping provides an inventory of soil and landscape properties of the area and identifies major soil and landscape qualities and constraints. It integrates soil and topographic features into single units with relatively uniform land management requirements. In the associated reports, soils are described in terms of soil materials in addition to the Australian Soil Classification, the Great Soil Groups, and the Northcote systems.

Online Maps: Part of this area is also covered by other soil mapping products, see the soil map index in eSPADE. eSPADE contains a suite of soil and landscape information including soil profile data. Many of these datasets have hot-linked soil reports. An alternative viewer is the SEED Map; an ideal way to see what other natural resources datasets (e.g. vegetation) are available for this map area.
