SoilGrids version 2017 services – communication

07 May 2020

After the release of the 2020 version of SoilGrids (see here for more details), a number of changes will happen to the soilgrids.org services and associated infrastructures. We are aware that these changes may have an impact on users of our services. However, these changes are unavoidable due to data structure changes on the new SoilGrids version (for example prediction of quantiles [uncertainty]) 

Data for the superseded SoilGrids version 2017 will remain available as geotiff at: https://files.isric.org/soilgrids/data/former/2017-03 (Webdav service) 

The webservices (WMS, WCS) for the 2017 version will be turned off on the 7th of May, 2020. 

The REST API at https://rest.soilgrids.org will be turned off on the 20th of June. The beta REST API is now available for the data of SoilGrids version 2.0 at http://rest.isric.org/soilgrids/v2.0/docs; it is under active development. In view of these changes,  SoilInfo app  will also cease to work on the 20th of June 2020 and will no longer be available on Google/Apple app stores. 

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause. However, we believe that the new services will provide a better experience for the users of SoilGrids data.
