Soil survey

A geo-spatial soils database for southern Ontario.

This soil survey data was mapped by a number of soil surveyors from the 1920s to the 1990s. The product incorporates soil information from a variety of map scales.

The soil complex database contains other descriptive information including:

  • slope class
  • Canada Land Inventory (CLI) ranking
  • stoniness
  • drainage class
  • texture
