From the reviews:"The book targets digital soil-mapping researchers and practitioners as it presents the most modern and advanced mapping techniques, and examines various approaches to digital soil mapping that span from its research and production to its environmental applications. The chapters are based upon papers of the Third Global Workshop on Digital Soil Mapping (DSM) that took place in Logan, Utah, USA in 2008, and explore this workshop's theme, Digital soil mapping: bridging research, production, and environmental application."
