This bubble map is meant to augment the information that has already been mapped and discussed in written assignments.  As such it does not include watershed information,  or the information in my water and "sources and sinks" assessments.  Rather, it is an effort to look at the empirical result of those elements as they interact further with the soil, contours and infrastructure of the site.  

Put simply, it identifies areas where there is consistent puddling, muddy spots that linger,  and drought areas where either too rapid drainage or sloped runoff leaves the terrain much drier than the surrounding terrain.


Each of these conditions represents an obstacle to cultivating the particular area on the site.
