At this website, the University of Idaho provides information and images of the twelve classifications of soil taxonomy. After learning about the soils, users can find world and United States maps illustrating where each are located. The website offers downloadable documents of the soil taxonomy text, maps and errata sheet for the second edition of _Soil Taxonomy, A Basic System of Soil Classification for Making and Interpreting Soil Surveys_. Students and educators can also find a link to the World Reference Base for Soil Resources. This website is tremendously helpful for anyone involved in soil science or soil mapping.
