Soil map unit raster classification - generated from a Random Forest model based on soil auger data points and terrain and parent material co-variate layers. This model uses 16 soil map units which represent groupings of taxonomically similar soils at NZ Soil Classification sub-group to family level. Random Forest predicts classifications - the map units so defined will be assigned typical soil associations and properties
