SOIL MAPS are a continuation of the photographic technique of the mudgram. They don’t focus on individual soil samples to generate an image but use soil according to where it was foraged on a map to recreate this map. Not by looking at geology, botany or infrastructure but by using the soil to generate the map by its own.
