Soil texture is the dominant texture class in the control zone (usually the upper 60 cm) of the soil profile as defined in Webb & Lilburne (2011). This layer is a "dissolved" representation of the soil texture attribute for S-map, where neighbouring S-map polygons have been combined if they have the same value of the attribute.

Soil drainage is a relatively simple classification of the soil profile that describes the likelihood of seasonal wetness (Webb & Lilburne 2011). It is based on the occurrence within specific depths of redox segregation and low chroma colours indicative of waterlogging and reduction (Milne et al. 1995). This layer is a "dissolved" representation of the soil drainage attribute for S-map soils, where neighbouring S-map polygons have been combined if they have the same value of the attribute.

Soil depth is defined according to a traditional agronomic concept of soil depth (Webb &
Lilburne 2011). Note that while the layer defining soil depth may cause some restriction in root penetration, it does not necessarily define the base of the potential rooting depth. This layer is a "dissolved" representation of the soil depth attribute for S-map soils, where neighbouring S-map polygons have been combined if they have the same value of the attribute.

Relative bypass flow is the potential susceptibility of water infiltrating at the soil surface to bypass the soil matrix as it drains through the soil. This is where the infiltrating water rapidly ‘short circuits’ the soil by percolating along preferential pathways (i.e., macropores, cracks, fissures, decayed-root channels). The vulnerability of land to bypass flow is based on soil classification, soil structure, and soil attributes that promote ponding. It does not take into account climate or land use.

The susceptibility of the soil to nitrogen leaching - the process whereby excess nutrients not held by the clay and organic matter complex of the soil leach beyond the root zone and contaminate groundwater. The susceptibility rating is based on the capacity of the soil to store water and the attenuation of nitrogen through denitrification associated with anaerobic conditions. It does not take into account the climate or land use but is limited to the effect of the soil characteristics.

S-map NZ Soil Classification

S-map's primary map layer is soil classes, i.e. delineated areas that are labelled with the soil family name. Each soil family is defined as a unique combination of attributes (NZSC classification, parent material, rock type, dominant texture and permeability class). Soil classes are further characterised as siblings according to their depth to rock class, stoniness, land type, drainage, texture (more detailed), functional horizons and miscellaneous variant information. The uncertainty of each of these family and sibling attribute classes is specified. Associated with the soil class layer will be additional map layers of fundamental and derived soil properties. The fundamental soil properties are depth (diggability), depth to slowly permeable layer, rooting depth, rooting barrier, horizon thickness, stoniness, clay and sand content. They are developed from sample information and expert knowledge. The derived soil layers are each based on a model (or pedo-transfer function). Some models are simple lookup tables that depend only on the soil class. Others combine various soil, land use, vegetation, climate or topographic attributes in a mathematical formula. Derived layers will include available water (mm), macroporosity, water retention, bulk density, total carbon, total nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, cation exchange capacity, pH, and phosphorus retention.
