Hands-on Global Soil Information Facilities

12-16 May 2014

ISRIC, Wageningen Campus

The aim of this course is to introduce new methods and software for the management and analysis of soil data as implemented in the R environment for statistical and geographical computing. The course alternates between lectures and computer practicals and covers a variety of subjects, such as 2D and 3D geostatistics, SOTER methods for soil mapping, and quantification of uncertainty in soil modeling. In addition, facilities for web-based upload and download of soil profile data (www.worldsoilprofiles.org) and covariate maps (www.worldgrids.org), algorithms for 3D digital soil mapping at regional and global scales (www.soilgrids.org), and the SoilInfo App for mobile devices will be demonstrated.
