Abstract
The landscape units on Land Physiography Map, Vol VII have been defined by photo-interpretation of aerial photographs on a scale of 1:50,000. About four days of field checking helped to define the soils and the main physiographic features. Information on the photographs was transferred to 1:50,000 topographical maps, which were reduced to a scale of 1:100,000. Definitions of permeability and drainage are according to the Soil Survey Manual (1951). The classification of the soils, according to FAO's latest revision of the legend of the Soil Map of the World, is tentative and not yet supported by any laboratory analysis. The project area is also covered by the Physiographic Map of South-Western Kenya published in scale 1:150,000 (Wielemaker, 1974).
