Data available at WDS Data Portal

 

The data holdings of the WDC-Soils, a regular member of the International Council for Science World Data System (ICSU-WDS), can now be harvested through the WDS Data Portal.

One of the core tasks of ISRIC - World Soil Information, in its capacity of ICSU World Data Center for Soils, is to make quality-assessed soil data freely available to the scientific community and to ensure long-term stewardships of our holdings. As of November 2014, metadata describing some of our 24,000 holdings can be also queried resp. accessed on-line through the WDS Portal; these are being harvested from ISRIC's GeoNetwork Metadata Service.
