Soil metadata catalogue

Metadata describe other data or datasets. They describe features such as date of collection, data preparation, format, units of measurement, quality measures, authorship, and licensing. To permit discovery across disparate repositories, metadata need to be described using consistent standards.

ISRIC promotes an open data policy based on WDS and INSPIRE principles. Our metadata catalogue GeoNetwork service is based on international standards: ISO 19115, ISO 19139 and ISO 19119 (services). Users can search, navigate, and download data using the friendly graphical interface and search tools.
