Summary
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unpublished paper soil reports and maps for England and Wales and a large body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
data.

All these data sets are held in the LandIS relational database that is
maintained by NSRI staff.

Access Constraints
Arrangements for access to soil data are governed by an agreement between NSRI
and Defra acting on behalf of the Crown. Under the LandIS Agreement:

-Data are only ever licensed (i.e. not sold) for use over a specified period,

-Departments of the Crown and their contractors are entitled to royalty-free
data for specified applications, and therefore only pay an administrative fee
to cover the cost of extraction and administration,

-Bona fide researchers are entitled to data on a similar basis,

-NSRI is entitled to charge all other individuals and groups, including the
Executive Agencies, an additional royalty fee to reflect the value of the
information. Royalty fees are calculated using a set of standardised charging
formulae that apply progressive discounts on base rates for larger volumes of
data.

Data are normally supplied on CD in an agreed format.
