Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingAbstract


The demand for soil data for agro-ecological and other environmental applications at national, regional and global level is growing; establishing a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) for global soil data is key for connecting soil data holders and serving the user community effectively. Organizations investing in a flexible soil SDI can efficiently contribute to and benefit from international collaborative initiatives while consolidating their role as mandated soil data holder. ISRIC–World Soil Information has been investing in the development of new geo-information technologies with the objective to improve and increase global soil data exchange and use. Here we describe main components of ISRIC’s evolving global soil SDI.
