Exploratory Map of the Soils of the State of Rio Grande do Sul

This map is a result of the technical partnership between the State of Rio Grande do Sul (through the Department of Agriculture and Supply) and IBGE. When associated with information about environment, concerning climate, vegetation, geology and land use, it supports evaluations that involve the use of soil. Some of them are worth mentioning: evaluation of the agricultural suitability of lands, classification of lands for irrigation and agricultural potential, elaboration of environmental diagnosis and ecological-economic zoning.
