Codes used for the specification of the intended purpose/level of abstraction for a given feature or object instance, ie the reason for the existence of the SoilFeature. <br /></p><p>Values: instance, typicalNorm, definingNorm. <br /></p>
Notes: DefiningNorm -- a description that specifies properties sufficient to identify a new occurrence as belonging to the class represented by the description. Basically these are the 'sufficient conditions' for class membership. Used when presented with a query 'I have a profile with these properties; which soil unit should I assign to the profile?' DefiningNorm has to do with the intension of a ControlledConcept.
Notes: Instance -- a description that is specific to a particular observed occurrence. This is 'raw data', and its classification may start out as very general.
Notes: TypicalNorm -- a description that specifies properties to be expected of some occurrence associated with the Soil. This description may include many properties that are not part of the DefiningNorm. <br /></p><p>For example, the fact that Rudosols typically have gravel within 1 metre of the surface horizon is not a defining property, but is a useful typical property. These kinds of descriptions would be used to address queries like 'This area is within a polygon classified as a Rudosol; what sort of Soil Profile am I most likely to encounter when I start digging?' The Rudosol may be defined by the presence of little variation in texture or colour with depth.<br /></p><p>TypicalNorm description would be constructed as a summary over many Instance descriptions.<br /></p>
