This document was prepared in the framework of ISRIC’s Community of Practice for soil information providers. It provides a compilation of resources required to compile a Soil and Terrain (SOTER) database at (sub)national scale using existing resources (i.e., no new field work is assumed). More detailed information on the various steps required for compiling the spatial (geographic) and attribute component of a SOTER database is provided in the cited documentation. Most of the materials cited here were created in the framework of the SOTER programme and related EU-projects. SOTER databases are typically compiled in the framework of international projects.
