Digital Soil Information for England and WalesEntry ID: LandIS
Abstract: The National Soil Resources Institute incorporates the former Soil Survey and
Land Research Centre and as a result maintains all the published and
unpublished paper soil reports and maps for England and Wales and a large body
of digital soil information.
The digital information comprises the following principle data sets.
-Vector and gridded vector versions of the 1:250,000 scale National Soil ... Map
(NATMAP) including the simplified Soilscapes version,
-The National Soil Inventory of data on soils and topsoil chemistry,
-Representative values or a range of properties and derived functional values
for soil series,
-Soil profile descriptions, a proportion of which have accompanying analytical
All these data sets are held in the LandIS relational database that is
maintained by NSRI staff.
