Using the example of a German conceptual soil map (CSM), the AA. introduce a procedure which could be considered as a framework for testing the terrain-related plausibility applied within a genetic based soil-ordering system. The CSM of the German Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt was tested regarding the plausibility of colluvial and fluvial process domains. The AA. show how basic relief parameters can be combined to specific indices which explain the occurrence of colluvial and fluvial process domains. Furthermore, they demonstrate how reference distributions can be defined by expert-knowledge in a transparent and traceable manner. Finally, the suitability of a traditional goodness-of-fit-test for comparing relief parameters'distributions is investigated
