Abstract
Reconnaissance soil surveys, or the mapping of soil and land characteristics at scale 1:100.000 or smaller, are normally carried out to serve multi-purpose land use planning. They therefore are always followed by till land evaluation. The procedure of land evaluation (or "land classification, "land suitability classification") involves the assessment of essential land. Characteristics to provide ratings of relative suitability of the land for physically possible and socially and economically promising forms of use. These relevant forms of land use, here called "land utilisation types" (also mown as "land use alternatives; or "development alternatives"), should be identified and defined as early as possible, preferably before or in the early stages of the soil survey. In that war the soil surveyor will 'be guided in the choice of the range of land characteristics that will have to be mapped.
