Abstract: - It is widely accepted that soil is a mixture of mineral constituents that have accumulated over time. The physical characteristics of soil vary according to the mineral and organic matter content and the process of formation. The soil's unique characteristics have been the subject of research in the field of civil engineering, which has continued to evolve to the present day due to the land's requirement for civil engineering construction, such as road paving. As a result, the current study sought to determine the similarity of soil samples based on their physical properties and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) values, as well as the relationship between the soil's physical properties and CBR values. To our knowledge, there is hardly little research in the literature investigating the topic under our investigation. Furthermore, we also mapped the physical characteristics and CBR values of numerous distinct soil samples using a Geographical Information System (GIS). This study concentrated on the West Lampung Regency, specifically the area between Bukit Kemuning in Central Lampung and Liwa in West Lampung, along the lines of Bukit Kemuning, Liwa, and Krui, all the way to the Lampung – Bengkulu province border. The soil samples from the area were taken for two tests: the unsoaked C BR test and the soaked CBR test. The results of the tests show that a 31-kilometre distance does not result in a significant difference in soil properties, which are generally similar except in clay-rich areas. Furthermore, the results of the laboratory analysis show that the amount of water in the soil sample affects the Liquid Limit (LL), Plastic Limit (PL), Maximum Dry Density (MDD), and CBR values; the lower the plastic limit value, and thus the lower the CBR value, the less water in the soil. The implications of the current findings are also discussed. Key-Words: - California Bearing Ratio, soil physical properties, soil types, construction, pavement
