This dataset contains 500 augers observations of soil properties collected for a digital soil mapping and land use capability analysis in the Kaikohe to Paihia area. An additional 172 tacit points of estimated soil properties at sites where pedologists were confident they could predict likely soil distribution are also included.
These data were used in conjunction with elevation, slope and other spatial explicit covariate data to predict soil distributions continuously across 100 km2 of Northland hill country
