The soil types are represented in a variety of soil
maps at different scales from
1:25 000 scale, where the predominant mapping unit
is the soil series to 1:250 000 scale where
the mapping units are much more complex and heterogeneous.
The 1:250 000 scale map has been aggregated into a map showing the distribution of major soil subgroups throughout the country. When using this map, it must be remembered that it is the dominant soil which is represented.
For this reason, some soils, will either be under or over represented on the map.
