The correlation distance is one of the important parameters for the application of random field theory to reliability analyses. Soil spatial variability is related to soil point variability with the reduction factor of variance in random field theory, and the reduction factor of variance depends on both soil auto-correlation distance and spatial area. The sampling space effect on auto-correlation distance is studied. The vertical and horizontal correlation distances of typical stratum are analyzed in statistics based on a large amount of investigation data and the representative values of correlation distance of local area are obtained. It is concluded that that the correlation distances estimated by different soil parameters are similar, and the horizontal correlation distance is much larger than the vertical one for the same soil parameter. The sampling space should be paid attention to when calculating correlation distance of soil parameter.
