Based on the newly established 1:50 000 soil database of Zhejiang Province, attempts were made to set up associations between soil species in the Genetic Soil Classification of China (GSCC) and soil subgroups in the Chinese Soil Taxonomy (CST) by referencing, and develop a CST soil subgroup distribution map. Results show that at the basic taxon level of GSCC, the referencing relationship was relatively clear, but at higher levels, the relationship got complicated. There were a total of 99 soil genus and 277 soil species in GSCC, among which, 62 genus and 252 species can be uniquely associated with soil subgroup in CST. So it is feasible to transform the large-scaled soil data yielded through the Second National Soil Survey using GSCC into CST, which can meet the requirements for plotting a 1:100 000 scale CST soil subgroup distribution map in theory. Through referencing the soils of Zhejiang could be sorted into 8 soil orders, of which Cambosols was in dominance, accounting for 31.3%, Anthrosols for 23.4%, and Histosols for the least percentage in area. At the order level in CST, soil distribution presented a clear pattern. These findings are of a certain value to directing soil classification using CST, and provide examples for CST soil mapping of Zhejiang Province.
