Description

Fetch KSSL laboratory pedon/horizon layer data from a local NASIS database, return as a SoilProfileCollection object.

Usage

1
fetchNASISLabData()

Details

This function currently works only on Windows, and requires a 'nasis_local' ODBC connection.

Value

a SoilProfileCollection class object

Note

This fuction attempts to do most of the boilerplate work when extracting KSSL laboratory site/horizon data from a local NASIS database. Lab pedons that have errors in their horizonation are excluded from the returned object, however, their IDs are printed on the console. See getHzErrorsNASIS for a simple approach to identifying pedons with problematic horizonation.
