Provincial Proportion File

Since many mapunits cross provincial boundaries, provision has been made to allocate a percentage of each mapunit to a maximum of three provinces. This allows more accurate estimation of areas of, for example, certain soils within a province.

N.B. This allocation was done by manual estimate, not GIS overlay. There are no plans at present to perform an electronic overlay to update this file.
