Fresno Area Urban Areas vs Irrigated LCC: grey regions are current urban areasFresno Area Urban Areas vs Irrigated LCC: grey regions are current urban areas

A couple of maps generated from a 1km gridded soil property database, derived from SSURGO data where available with holes filled with STATSGO data. Soil properties visualized at this scale illustrate several important soil-forming factors operating within California: sediment source in the Great Valley, the interplay between precipitation and ET, and removal of salts.
