About the Map: The Soil Map of Lithuania based on a reclassification of the Lithuanian soil map and a soil climate map. The soil map shows the distribution of the great groups according to Soil Taxonomy.
Possible Uses of the Map: Soil scientists interested in small scale regional analyses. Useful for teachers and students who are interested in the distribution of the major soil types of Lithuania.
Source: Soil climate map, USDA-NRCS, Soil Science Division, World Soil Resources, Washington D.C.
Data Aggregation and Reliability: Conversion of the Lithuanian Soil Map to Soil Taxonomy required assigning a Great Groups to every combination of Lithuanian classification and soil climate regime. Differences between the Lithuanian system and Soil Taxonomy are such that direct correlations are not always possible. The great group map data is in ArcView shapefile format.
Data Definitions: Data is classed by Soil Taxonomy Great Groups and by mesic and cryic soil temperature regimes.
Data Disclaimer: Country boundaries are not authoritative.
