This paper outlines a distribution method for spatial irrigated soils information through the
commonly available web based Google Earth application. This method allows anyone with an internet
connection to assess spatial information freely and easily as an overlay feature in Google Earth. A total of
approximately 325 000 acres of spatial soil information in the irrigated regions of the Murrumbidgee and
Coleambally Irrigation Areas in south-eastern Australia have been made available as Google Earth overlays.
