NATMAP 1000

1km x 1km gridded soils data

NATMAP 1000 is a soil series (soil type) based, 1km2 'gridded vector' spatial data set covering the whole of Wales and England. Natmap 1000 can be supplied as follows:

  • NATMAP 1000 - relative % of soil series per polygon

Key Facts and Statisticss about NATMAP 1000

  • Simplified rendition of the national soil map.
  • 297 soil series mapped as either dominant series per 1km2 or relative % of all soil series within the 1km2.
  • The soil series percentages are calculated from the percentages of the NATMAP Map units (Soil associations) within the 1km2. This means that the percentages given for the soil series within the polygon should not be taken as precise for that square. They are however, the best estimate available.

Who and what is this useful for?

NATMAP 1000 is useful for anyone wanting a general understanding of the soil series within a region, for those who are not too concerned with actual line work, but only require the overall breakdown of soils within their area.

NATMAP 1000 is ideal for those who want a good impression of the soils covering all of England and Wales, but who have a tight budget.
