Description :
A procedure for the statistical characterization of the units of the Belgian soil map, published at a scale of 1:20 000, is described and illustrated. It makes use of the information of 8 962 soil profiles described and sampled during the Belgian soil survey campaign and can be considered as an alternative for the use of legend class values and the selection of « reference » profiles. The procedure thereby considers horizons as basic information carriers and accounts for evidence on systematic variation of some properties of a given soil map unit over different regions.
