Foodscapes can be consolidated into biophysical groupings that are identified by the dominant soil type found in each of them. Soil type is determined by the interaction of parent material, climate, vegetation, terrain, time, and human activity.
Soil groups are inclusive of the biophysical attributes of an area.
Intensity groups are inclusive of the land management attributes of an area.
Dominant crops are the primary agricultural product grown within a specific area. They represent the crops with the highest production level among all the crops at each pixel.
