As an aid to urban planning, a detailed soil survey was carried out in 1976 on approximately 1,040 hectares (10.4 square kilometers or 4 square miles) in the vicinity of Langdon, Alberta. As the soil survey report of the area indicates, the geographic location of the soils describes pertinent landscape features and gives soil interpretations for selected uses. The area is found within the jurisdiction of Calgary Regional Planning commission. Six soil units were mapped on two different parent materials.
