The Kentucky Soil Data System is a system of information storage intended to be used as both a design and research tool. It contains information relating to soil and rock (parent material) properties and allows for input of precise sample locations. The storage format is presented here. This report is intended primarily to aid in the input of data. A user-oriented report covering what information is available and how requests for information should be made is a forthcoming compliment.
