ISRIC-WISE international soil profile dataset

  • The WISE database provides a homogenized set of primary soil data relevant for a wide range of environmental studies, including agro-ecological zoning, assessments of crop production, soil vulnerability to pollution and soil gaseous emission potentials.
  • This subset of WISE 1 contains 1125 globally distributed profiles and provided the basis for the Global Pedon Database (GPDB) of IGBP-DIS. 
  • Profiles were selected from data holdings provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO-SDB), and the International Soil Reference and Information Centre (ISRIC-ISIS).
