Soil Mapping of the Mil Plain of Azerbaijan Based on the Aerospace Materials

Abstract

Aerophotos, aerospace images and ortophotoplans, reflecting modern state of the surface of the earth, should be used while mapping of soils and generally natural objects (plants, water, landscape etc). In our republic, field-land investigation results and topographic maps were basically used in soil mapping before. As a long period of time passed after compiling those maps, they do not correspond to today’s reality. In this regard, we for the first time compiled soil map of the Mil Plain of Azerbaijan at 1:1000 000 scale, based on the aerophoto, aerospace images and ortophotoplans, reflecting modern images of the earth’s surface

Keywords: The Mil Plain, aerophoto, aerospace image, map, ortophotoplan
