Soil Landscapes of Central and Eastern NSW

This map is a compilation of all 39 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.
