The National Ecological Framework for Canada's "Soil Texture by Ecoprovince” dataset contains tables that provide soil texture information within the ecoprovince framework polygon. It provides soil texture codes and their English and French language descriptions as well as the percentage of the polygon that the component occupies. Soil texture indicates the relative proportions of the various soil separates (sand, silt, clay) as described by classes of texture. Soil separates are mineral particles, 2.0 mm in diameter and include: gravel 0.2 -7.5 cm and cobbles 7.5-25.0 cm.

The “Soils of Canada, Derived” national scale thematic datasets display the distribution and areal extent of soil attributes such as drainage, texture of parent material, kind of material, and classification of soils in terms of provincial Detailed Soil Surveys (DDS) polygons, Soil Landscape Polygons (SLCs), Soil Order and Great Group. The relief and associated slopes of the Canadian landscape are depicted on the local surface form thematic dataset.

The purpose of the “Soils of Canada, Derived” series is to facilitate the cartographic display and basic queries of the Soil Landscapes of Canada at a national scale. For more detailed or sophisticated analysis, users should investigate the full “Soil Landscapes of Canada” product.

Soil Survey polygons contain soils spatial and attribute information utilized by the Ministry of Environment online Soil Information Finder Tool (SIFT). The information pertains to soil survey data in the Province of British Columbia, as well as links to a variety of reports and maps. Polygons related to soil surveys can be made up of a complex of up to 3 components representing 3 different soil types. These components are aspatial and represent the amount in the polygon indicated by the PERCENT_x field for the component x.

Soil Mapping (SOIL) Project Boundaries (study areas) contains the soil survey project area and attributes describing each project (project level metadata), plus links to the locations of other data associated with the project (e.g., soil survey reports, polygon datasets, plotfiles, scanned maps, legends). Soil Mapping divides the landscape into units according to soil association, name, type, drainage, parent material, and texture. This layer is derived from the STETEIPROJECTBOUNDARIESSP layer by filtering on the PROJECT_TYPE attribute. The Soil Survey dataset contains project boundaries as well as the soil survey polygons which are available in a variety of formats including: 1) via the Soil Information Finder Tool Mapping App (interactive app), 2) Soil Survey Spatial data with Soil Name and Layer Files (for download or viewing via iMapBC), or as 3) Soil Mapping Data Packages with geodatabase or shape files, and a data dictionary.

This database contains the data set described in Andrieux B. et al. (in preparation) about carbon stocks in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forests. Carbon density in different reservoirs of the ecosystem is available at the plot scale (n = 72): living aboveground biomass, coarse woody debris, organic soil horizon, mineral soil (top 15 cm), mineral soil (15-35 cm) and illuvial (B) horizon (top 15 cm). Ancillary biophysical data includes geographic locations, topographic surveys, composition of the moss mat, time since fire, and soil properties (carbon content, bulk density, forest floor depth, pH, texture and amorphous metals).
