A method to account small areas (soil profiles) using GIS

Osvaldo Coelho Pereira Neto, Maria de Fátima Guimarães

Abstract


Geographic Information System – GIS is a technology developed to generate and to analyze spatial information on several thematic areas. This work provides a method to generate and to quantify small extension areas, like morphological homogeneous units (MHU) of a soil cultural profile, using the software Arcview8. The MHU were easily identified and their areas quantified by depth level.


Keywords


Geocoding; Soil cultural profile; Morphological homogeneous units.
