Soil has been a focus area of many disciplines including but not limited to, lawyers, geographers, geologists, ecologists, farmers, ranchers, environmentalists, planners, engineers, hydrologists, land managers, country supervisors, etc. Understanding soil information is critical in making sound land management decisions and resource allocations. Our society is needing more uses from our limited soil resources for clean water, food supplies, and building materials in a sustainable fashion. With an ever-expanding population and its increasing demands on our productive lands, decision makers and their support staffs need to have a better comprehension of soil resource data that are contained in related reports and their associated map products. This topic offers insights as to how to make sense of these reports and assessments.
