The variance quad-tree (VQT) algorithm and apparent soil electrical conductivity measured by electromagnetic induction EM38 were used to design a sampling scheme for soil salinity in coastal saline region. The result indicated that the spatial distribution of soil salinity produced with the VQT scheme was quite similar to that produced with total sampling sites.
