Prediction of Soil Properties Using Fuzzy Membership

  title={Prediction of Soil Properties Using Fuzzy Membership},
  author={Zhu and Arden Moore and James E. Burt},
This research explores the use of fuzzy membership values generated by the Soil Landscape Inference Model (SoLIM) to predict detailed spatial variation of soil properties. Two fuzzy membership based approaches were used to predict soil property values over space. The first is a fuzzy membership weighted average model with which the soil property value at a location is the weighted average of the fuzzy membership values and the typical soil property values of the soil types. This approach has… CONTINUE READING
