Real soils used to make state soil map of US… and guess which one’s stuck on NY!

Les Gregor is a Canadian artist who made this awesome soils map of the US, using the real state soil for each state:Image

The Soil Science Society of America alerted me to this project, which has also been covered by Slate. You can actually order one for yourself if you want.

What might be most exciting to you guys is, of course, its relevance to our last month’s news story about the NY state soil! Don’t worry – Les used Honeoye to create the shape of NYS, since that’s the state soil registered with the NRCS.
