Exercise 2: Viewing Soil Types and Associated Properties on a Project Area
- Clear the sensitive areas layer by clicking Clear Layer in the Sensitive Areas tab, and then click on the Soils tab.
- Check the Visible and Identify boxes, and then click the Clip button. This will display a color coded map of the soils within the project area boundary.
An interactive summary table of the project area soils displays the soil series name, area and percent of the tract covered by that soil type. The Layer Transparency slide bar allows you to make the soils layer transparent.
- Click directly on the Soil Name to bring up a text box with more detailed soil properties.
