Summary
Abstract: This CD-ROM contains the Digital Soil Map of the World in various formats,
verctor as well as raster, supported by most GIS software. The base material is
the FAO/UNESCO Soil Map of the World at an original scale of 1:5 million.
Programs and data files give tabular country information on soil
characteristics and derived soil properties from the map are included, such as
pH, organic carbon content and soil moisture storage capability. In addition
programs and data files are included that display derived soil properties. The
revision included the adding of a number of user-friendly ArcView files
allowing the display of dominant soils by continent and the inclusion of the
update of the image of the WRB World Soil Resources Map.
