Pedological survey service, coastal area Latium Region

Client: ARSIAL – Regional Agency for Agricultural Development and Innovation of Lazio
Country: Italy
Period: January 2023 – Ongoing

Project objectives:

The service consists of the elaboration of the geographic database of Soil Units at the scale 1:50,000 through pedological survey and sampling of soils; chemical and physical laboratory determinations on sampled soils; archiving in the bank of all collected data; classification and evaluation of soils; revision and integration of the regional soil catalog; and elaboration of the required final reports.

The service was divided according to pedological macroenvironments into three areas attributed to each of the three partner firms. This subdivision takes into account past survey experience by allowing for harmonization with previous surveys performed at both 1:250,000 and 1: 50,000 scales. It also facilitates the cartographic processing of new limits, the implementation of databases as well as the logistical management of surveys to be carried out.
