A step beyond creating kml files of your digital soil information is the creation of customized interactive mapping products that can be visualized within your web browser. Some notes about how to do this using R are given in our book and with example here. I wanted to teach myself how i might be able to embed these interactive maps into a website, so i created an example to help me. In doing this i hope others who have not come across interactive mapping before are able to get some basic insights about it.
