Engineering and environmental geology mapping is worried with representing the uppermost few tens of metres, quite extra, of the various rocks and soils comprising the Earth's floor in a fashion that may be simply understood through geologists and non-geological experts, corresponding to planners. Ease of interpretation of three-d fact from a two-dimensional map or plan is paramount if the maps are for use to most sensible virtue. Having validated the elemental rules of engineering geological mapping, assistance is given on the way to make such maps and what to place on them. features are of specific value. One is the outline of earth fabrics in phrases that express most probably engineering houses and behavior; nationwide and foreign criteria were constructed for this function. the opposite is assisting or simplifying the translation of the map; the stripe process and the extra normal zoning procedure departing from the traditional geological method of mapping, convey how this is often performed. the foundations are illustrated by means of examples at small scale, terrain overview at medium scales, and concrete geology and building websites on the biggest scales. Environmental facets comprise chance and chance overview, and land and water administration. laptop aided mapping offers and interesting prospect for the longer term

Determinations, following existing classifications, are made on disturbed samples, and the characteristics are independent of the condition in which the soil occurs in the ground, and disregard the influence of the structure of the soil mass. The soil classification can give a good guide to how the disturbed soil will behave as a construc­ tion material, for instance in embankments, at various moisture contents.

For this reason, geological names should be retained, but they must be simple. 2 Photomicrographs illustrating the three types of rock texture. 3 mm wide, (a) The interlocking texture of granite (crossed polars); (b) The cemented texture in sandstone; (c) Laminated-foliated texture in biotite schist Early developments in rock description and classification 27 which have a direct bearing on the homogeneity of the rock mass, Deere proposed that the lengths of pieces of core obtained during each coring run should be measured and recorded.
