These functions return records from the Soil Classification database, either from the local NASIS database (all series) or via web report (named series only).

get_soilseries_from_NASIS(
  stringsAsFactors = default.stringsAsFactors(),
  dsn = NULL,
  delimiter = " over "
)

Arguments

stringsAsFactors

logical: should character vectors be converted to factors? This argument is passed to the uncode() function. It does not convert those vectors that have set outside of uncode() (i.e. hard coded).

dsn

Optional: path to local SQLite database containing NASIS table structure; default: NULL

delimiter

character. Used to collapse taxminalogy records where multiple values are used to describe strongly contrasting control sections. Default " over " creates combination mineralogy classes as they would be used in the family name.

Value

A data.frame
