Summary:

This data set is the original vector data set received from CanSIS. The data includes the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Attribute tables provide the various soil data for the polygons; there is one attribute table for Saskatchewan and one for Manitoba. The data are stored in ARC/Info export format files.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/STAFF/regsoilv/comp/Region_Soils_Vector.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
