ANZSoilMLSummary schema to import all related application schemas for ANZSoilML v1.0.0
ANZSoilML is an application schema that specifies a set of feature-types and supporting structures for information used in the Australian and New Zealand soil sciences.
ANZSoilML is scoped to the information specified in:
AUS: Australian Soil and Land Survey Field Handbook, Third edition, 2009, The National Committee on Soil and Terrain.
NZL: Soil Description, Revised edition, 1995, Milne, J.D.G., Clayden, B., Singleton, P.L., Wilson, A.D.
ANZSoilML is primarily concerned with observed properties of Soils and associated Landscapes.
ANZSoilML is factored into a set of sub-packages that are maintained separately.
ANZSoilML was derived from OzSoilML, which was developed under the auspices of the Australian Collaborative Land Evaluation Program (ACLEP)

ANZSoilML.ANZSoilML_SoilThe ANZSoilML_Soil Package contains classes representing notional soil units, soil profiles and soil layers whose complete and precise extent is inferred to exist. Explicit spatial properties are available through association with a SpatialEntity via the AbstractSoil generalization.

Soils includes both formal units (i.e. formally adopted and named in the official lexicon) and informal units (i.e. named but not promoted to the lexicon) and unnamed units (i.e. recognisable and described and delineable in the field but not otherwise formalised).
