Rapid soil surveys may be made from sample vertical colour photographs taken on low-level reconnaissance flights. The method and techniques used in the South East Shinyanga Land Use Study in Tanzania are described. Soils were identified by colour, vegetation and catenal position, and classified into major groupings that recognised the limitation of the data base.
