Advanced:
Material and mass of the earth or rock that do not show pedological development. They are not soils but typically underlie them. The substrate includes the R horizon and that part of the C horizon that shows no pedological development.  The substrate beneath the soil may or may not be the parent material of the soil.<br /></p><p>The Substrate is clearly related to the GeoSciML GeologicUnit. However, as the observations typically made on the substrate by soil scientists are different to those made by geologists, it is considered a separate class here.  Future harmonization between domains should resolve these differences.<br /></p>

Public GeneticTypeTerm
  geneticType
Details:
inlineOrByReference=byReference
isMetadata=false
nillable=true
sequenceNumber=2
Notes: A genetic classification based on the 'Glossary of substrate mass genetic types" (p217ff).<br /></p><p>This classification is most likely a subset of the IUGS-CGI lithology classification and a mapping between the terms used here and those by GeoSciML should be possible.<br /></p>
Public MassStrengthTerm
  massStrength
Details:
inlineOrByReference=byReference
isMetadata=false
nillable=true
sequenceNumber=3
Notes: Broad strength classes based on the consolidation level (p215)<br /></p><p>Examples are 'Earth or soil', 'very weak rock', 'weak rock', 'moderately strong rock', 'strong rock' <br /></p>
Public SoilObservationMethodTerm
  observationMethod
Details:
inlineOrByReference=byReference
isMetadata=false
nillable=true
sequenceNumber=4
Notes: ObservationMethod is a metadata snippet indicating how the feature was determined. ObservationMethod is a convenience property that provides a quick and dirty approach to observation metadata when data are reported using a feature view (as opposed to observation view). This property corresponds (loosely) to ISO19115 Lineage.  (eg: digitised, Global Positioning System, published map, field observation, downhole survey, aerial photography, field survey, soil pit, existing vertical exposure, undisturbed soil core, auger boring, outcrop)<br /></p><p>ASLS Field Handbook p205<br /></p>

Tag Value
byValuePropertyType false
Details:
Values: true,false
Default: false
Description: Create a property type that requires that the instance is encoded inline (applies to ISO 19136:2007 encoding rule). Always set to false in INSPIRE.
isCollection false
Details:
Values: true,false
Default: false
Description: Identifies the feature type as a feature collection.
noPropertyType false
Details:
Values: true,false
Default: false
Description: Surpress creation of a standard property type that supports inline or by-reference encoding (applies to ISO 19136:2007 encoding rule). Always set to false in INSPIRE.
