Pedometric mapping of soil organic matter using uncertain soil type information from a soil map

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingAbstractAcademic

Abstract

Choropleth soil maps are an important source of information on spatial variation of quantitative soil properties and are therefore frequently used for mapping these properties. A commonly used method for spatial prediction is to calibrate a regression model using mapped soil type as predictor, followed by kriging of the residuals. However, the strength of the relationship between soil property and mapped soil type depends on the accuracy of the soil type map.
