This database describes the soils of the pastoral and cropping land of Canterbury, from the Kowhai River in the north to the Rangitata River in the south, but not including Banks Peninsula. The original survey was mapped as a reconnaissance soil survey at 2 miles to the inch. These original soil boundaries have been very substantially revised and recompiled onto 1:50,000 scale topographic base by T.H. Webb in the 1990s and again in the 2000s.
