Global Soil Types, 0.5-Degree Grid (Modified Zobler)
Entry ID: ZOBLERSOILDERIVED_540_1


Summary
Abstract: A global data set of soil types is available at 0.5-degree latitude by 0.5-degree longitude resolution. There are 106 soil units, based on Zobler's (1986) assessment of the FAO/UNESCO Soil Map of the World. This data set is a conversion of the Zobler 1-degree resolution version to a 0.5-degree resolution.
