This article briefly discusses some of the soil description parameters of the soil classification guideline used in South Africa, and compares this with global soil logging standards used in the geotechnical engineering community. Emphasis is placed on the methodology for primary soil type classification, and the limitations of this "factual" information when used in geotechnical design.
