Abstract

Abstract

This paper deals briefly with procedures and kinds of information currently being obtained in the soil-vegetation survey of wild land in California and some of the problems encountered. The principal objective of the survey is to obtain accurate basic information on the kind and distribution of soils and natural vegetation, their relationships, and their characteristics and uses as an aid in better management of wild lands. The classification and mapping of both soils and vegetation follows a closely integrated procedure in which the skillful stereoscopic interpretation of aerial photographs plays an important part.
