    This paper discusses the use of air photos, not as a reconnaissance aid but as a major tool in the preparation of an engineering soil map. The discussion is based upon experience gained during the preparation of an Engineering Soil Map of New Jersey, a task undertaken by the Joint Highway Research Project at Rutgers University. Since the mapping program was established, a detailed map covering an aggregate area of approximately 2000 sq miles has been completed, while additional areas totaling some 1800 sq miles are in various advanced stages of completion.

    The objectives of the report are: to present the soil mapping problem in New Jersey; review the project techniques used in preparing the soil map; discuss the comparative value of air photo, agronomic and geologic study in different areas of the state.
