We integrate geographic information technology with soil science to advance understanding of soil landscapes and develop better soil maps. Our work begins with strategically thinking about sampling design to efficiently capture landscape variability and ends with the effective communication of soil information to meet the respective audience’s needs. In between is a lot of data mining, spatial analysis, and study of soil forming processes to better understand soil-landscape relationships.

"Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."
