Wizard step 1: Soil Types

In the first step of the Wizard, you can indicate which soil types are needed for this project. You can also add new soil types, copy soil types or change existing (non-predefined) soil types here. Information about soil types can be found under Methodology: Soil Types. The predefined default soil types are positioned under the topmost item: 'Predefined (Based on NEN 6740)' in the tree of defined soil types and are subdivided into five different main classes:

gravel
sand
loam
clay
peat
