SoilGrids is ISRIC – World Soil Information’s flagship system for global digital soil mapping. Every year, thousands of people access these open-access maps and download them for their own use and we want to know: how is SoilGrids working for you?
In February and March 2022, the World Soil Museum hosted a four-part online series called “Peatland Exchanges.” The series was initiated by the museum’s artist-in-residence Kate Foster in partnership with Wageningen University & Research’s Home Turf Project and WetFutures.
A new open-access field work tool for soil description is now available through ISRIC – World Soil Information: Soil Description DevTool. This tool is for people doing field work who will describe soils using the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) 2006 Guidelines for Soil Description.
The Soil Description DevTool is a form that can be filled out from a smartphone.
Once uploaded and deployed, the form can be used for full soil description and assessment.
