                   Soil Resource Mapping

The Objective of SRM is to 1) Prepare soil map on 1:50000 scale using toposheets and satellite remote sensing data 2) Generate district based information on nature, extent and potential of soil resources 3)Develop a methodilogy to reduce tiem and man power required for ground surveys 4) Delineate soil mapping units using uniform legend.Methodology for Soil Resource Mapping: The steps involved for conducting the soil resource mapping using remote sensing technique and generation of digital database are as follows:- 1) Development of Legend  2) Preparation of Base Map 3) Delineation of Landscape/ Geological boundary 4) Delineation of Physiographic Units 5) Delineation of Slope Boundary 6)   Delineation of Land use boundary 7) Pre-field Interpretation 8) Selection of Sample Strips 9)   Ground Truthing and Field Work 10)   Final Interpretation, Validation and Finalisation of Maps [Details].
