ISRIC-WISE derived soil properties on a 5 by 5 arc-minutes global grid (ver. 1.2)
Entry ID: ISRIC_WISE5by5min_ver1-1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Version 1.2 describes a harmonized dataset of derived soil properties for the world. It was created using the soil distribution shown on the 1:5 million scale FAO-Unesco Soil Map of the World (DSMW) and soil property estimates derived from the ISRIC-WISE soil profile database, version 3.1.

The dataset considers 19 soil variables that are commonly required for agro-ecological zoning, land ... View entire text

Purpose: The derived information may be used for exploratory assessments at a broad scale (< 1:5 million; 5 by 5 arcminutes and coarser), pending the global update of the information on world soil resources at more detailed scales, upon due consideration of the underlying generalisations and assumptions.
