Mapping forestsoils usingconventional methods is timeconsumingand expensive. An expert system is described and applied to the mapping of five forest soil-landscape units formed on a single granitoid parent material. Three thematic maps were considered important in influencing the distribution of soils. The first showed thedistribution ofnineclassesofnative eucalypt forests, and the secondand third were derived from a digital elevation model and represented slope gradient and a soil wetness… CONTINUE READING
