Spatial Data Conversion of the Atlas of Australian Soils to the Australian Soil Classification v01

Abstract

This dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme. You can find a link to the parent datasets in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

This dataset converts the original Digital Atlas of Australian Soils (GUID: 9e7d2f5b-ff51-4f0f-898a-a55be8837828) shapefile into the Australian soil classification, as per data from Conversion of the Atlas of Australian Soils to the Australian Soil Classification (GUID: 295707d5-2774-4ca5-a539-6c0426bbd662). A Layer file is also supplied using the RGB colour reference table, also found in the Conversion of the Atlas of Australian Soils to the Australian Soil Classification dataset.

Purpose

Provides a spatial and cartographic representation of the Digital Atlas of Australian Soils shapefile into the new Australian soil classification.

Dataset History

From the Conversion of the Atlas of Australian Soils to the Australian Soil Classification dataset (GUID: 295707d5-2774-4ca5-a539-6c0426bbd662) the file asclut.txt was converted to .csv format and field headings added (MAP_UNIT, SOIL_CODE, SOIL_SYMBOL, SOIL).

This csv file (asclut.csv) was joined to the Digital Atlas of Australian Soils (GUID: 9e7d2f5b-ff51-4f0f-898a-a55be8837828), soilAtlas2M shapefile on the common 'MAP_UNIT' field. The resulting join was saved as 'soilAtlas2M_ASC_Conversion.shp'

The symbology of this shapefile was updated by matching the RGB values provided in the 'asc_colours.xls' spreadsheet from the Conversion of the Atlas of Australian Soils to the Australian Soil Classification dataset (GUID: 295707d5-2774-4ca5-a539-6c0426bbd662) to the 'SOIL' field. A Layer File was created 'soilAtlas2M_ASC_Conversion.lyr'
