AGRASID is a product of the Canada – Alberta Environmental Sustainable Agriculture (CAESA) soil inventory project (SIP), was initially released on CD ROM in 1998. The project involved the recompilation of lines and information contained within existing hard copy soil survey reports dating back to 1925 supplemented by additional field sampling to improve polygon resolution in areas where existing soil survey information was produced at a smaller scale than that of the CAESA-SIP project. purpose: To develop a standard spatial soil landscape database for the agricultural region of Alberta. This resource does not cover all areas of Alberta. credit: Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Soil Correlator: Anthony Brierley (retired); Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Content Specialist: Michael Bock. status: MD_ProgressCode: completed pointOfContact: CI_ResponsibleParty: organisationName: Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Government of Alberta positionName: Environmental Strategy and Research Section, Land Use Unit contactInfo: CI_Contact: phone: CI_Telephone: voice: 780-427-3739 address: CI_Address: deliveryPoint: 302, 7000 - 113 Street city: Edmonton administrativeArea: Alberta postalCode: T6H 5T6 country: Country: CA electronicMailAddress: ard.soilviewer@gov.ab.ca hoursOfService: 08:15 to 16:30 Monday to Friday role: CI_RoleCode: pointOfContact resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: notPlanned descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Alberta, Canada type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Soil keyword: Soil Landscapes keyword: National Ecological Stratification keyword: Dirt keyword: Soil properties keyword: Rangeland keyword: agroecology type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme thesaurusName: CI_Citation: title: geoscientificInformation, 008 date: CI_Date: date: 2016-08-05 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: publication citedResponsibleParty: missing descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Downloadable Data thesaurusName: uuidref: 723f6998-058e-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66 resourceConstraints: MD_Constraints: useLimitation: The data remains the property of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AAF).

Soil landscapes sharing common characteristics at a more regional scale were further classified and then dissolved into land system polygons.
