This course introduces concepts of mapping efficiency from both statistical and economic perspective. It promotes careful planning of the DSM projects (going from sampling, field data collection to actual production and dissemination of soil information). Theoretical concepts will be illustrated using real life case studies. Upon completing this course, the participants will be able to: estimate the costs of producing soil information per area units, evaluate and choose the best possible technique to produce soil information, write up supplementary documentation and improve usability of soil information
