The soil classification system that has been developed around the Munsell Color System is an established and accepted process to assign a soil type. This classification system has been used in the United States for more than 55 years to aid in the management and stewardship of natural resources.
Through the use of the Munsell Soil Color Charts, practitioners from a wide range of professions including agronomists, biologists, archaeologists, geologists and zoologists can document and share reliable and consistent information about the colour of soils at a particular site with colleagues anywhere around the world. The charts are also suitable for use by university and high school students and members of a wide range of professions including building and contracting, forestry and landscaping.
