SoilGrids1km System and Data Freely Available to the International Community
ISRIC – World Soil Information (WDS Regular Member) has released an automated information system for global soil mapping at a resolution of 1 km (30 arc second). The system, known as SoilGrids1km, is the result of international collaboration and data sharing. The SoilGrids system is intended to facilitate global soil data initiatives—such as currently undertaken within the Global Soil Partnership—that are aimed at addressing a wide range of global environmental and societal issues (see Plos ONE 2014). The web service and data can be accessed freely at http://soilgrids1km.isric.org/.
