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Institute incorporates the former Soil Survey and Land Research Centre and as a result maintains all the published and unpublished paper soil reports and maps for England and Wales and a large body of digital soil information.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. [Summary provided by Cranfield University.]

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.
