Computer Aided Design for Soil Classification Relational Database and Retrieval Techniques

J E Atajeromavwo, E U Tibi, O Ugboh


The paper focuses on the problems associated with
classification, storage and retrieval of information on soil data,
such as the incompatibility of soil data semantics; inadequate
documentation, and lack of indexing; hence it is pretty difficult
to efficiently access large database. Consequently, information
on soil is very difficult to retrieve hence, modification and
update of soil data become very difficult. The relations
supported by the system for the purpose of storage and
retrieval of soil classification are outlined and translated into
graphical presentation. The paper also presents algorithms
showing the procedure for generating various soil
classifications, retrieval techniques for efficient and quick
retrieval of information on soil data.
