Complexity class of polygon
|Title||Complexity class of polygon|
Complexity of soil landscape attribute classes is determined from information provided on source maps and the accompanying soil reports. The concept of complexity provides an indication of attribute variability within a polygon, particularly with respect to the classes of parent material deposition modes and soil development. Three levels of complexity have been established. They provide a warning of variability to anyone interpreting the information.Notes
This information was originally found in SLC verson 1.0. It was translated to version 2.2 using a polygon intersection approach.
|Classes||Reliability: 4 classes. First used in SLC 2.2.|
Soil and landscape attributes are highly variable and unpredictable; dominant, subdominant , and inclusion components are present, each of which has been generalized from more than two classes of parent material or soil development, or both; this class indicates extreme oversimplification in any interpretations from the attribute tables.
Soil and landscape attributes are moderately variable but predictable; there are generally dominant and subdominant components, each of which usually have been generalized from no more than two classes of parent material or soil development, or both; there may also be an inclusion in the polygon.
Soil and landscape attributes within the polygon are uniform for most interpretations; in most cases the polygon has only a dominant component.
Complexity was not identified.
