This chapter takes a closer look at both the extent to which urban sprawl and soil sealing are already mapped in Australia, and the accessibility of soil information through soil databases such as the New South Wales Soil and Land Information System (SALIS). Urban sprawl and associated soil sealing are a worldwide phenomenon, which greatly affects the availability of agricultural land. Hence, land use planning requires a far greater understanding of these phenomena and consideration of soil quality than what is currently the practise. In order to make soil information more accessible, it can be used to create soil landscape maps incorporating constraints and limitations imposed by different soil and geological conditions. Soil capability maps are examples for this, and provide easily accessible information on soil quality for planners.
