SoilGrids 2.0: producing soil information for the globe with quantified spatial uncertainty
Abstract. SoilGrids produces maps of soil properties for the entire globe at medium spatial resolution (250 m cell size) using state-of-the-art machine learning methods to generate the necessary
Satellite data integration for soil clay content modelling at a national scale
GlobalSoilMap for Soil Organic Carbon Mapping and as a Basis for Global Modeling
The demand for information on functional soil properties is high and has increased over time. This is especially true for soil organic carbon (SOC) in the framework of food security and climate
S‐World: A Global Soil Map for Environmental Modelling
The research community increasingly analyses global environmental problems like climate change and desertification with models. These global environmental modelling studies require global, high
How well does Predictive Soil Mapping represent soil geography? An investigation from the USA
Abstract. We present methods to evaluate the spatial patterns of the geographic distribution of soil properties in the USA, as shown in gridded maps produced by Predictive Soil Mapping (PSM) at
SoilGrids1km — Global Soil Information Based on Automated Mapping
SoilGrids1km provides an initial set of examples of soil spatial data for input into global models at a resolution and consistency not previously available and results of regression modeling indicate that the most useful covariates for modeling soils at the global scale are climatic and biomass indices, lithology, and taxonomic mapping units derived from conventional soil survey.
Soil Property and Class Maps of the Conterminous United States at 100-Meter Spatial Resolution
With growing concern for the depletion of soil resources, conventional soil maps need to be updated and provided at finer and finer resolutions to be able to support spatially explicit


GlobalSoilMap : Basis of the global spatial soil information system
The GlobalSoilMap: Basis of the global spatial soil information system captures the work conducted by the Digital Soil Mapping and soil science community that was presented during the first
Regional Approach to Soil Property Mapping using Legacy Data and Spatial Disaggregation Techniques
Current regional and national estimates of soil properties for the USA, such as organic carbon (SOC) storage or root zone available water capacity (AWC), are based on analysis of soil maps developed
Predicting and mapping soil available water capacity in Korea
A protocol for mapping soil available water capacity in South Korea at a fine scale using data available from surveys and using the modal profile data from the Taxonomical Classification of Korean Soils is demonstrated.
The role of soil inference systems in digital soil assessments
In order to evolve beyond Digital Soil Mapping (DSM) sensu stricto, there is a need for tools that can augment observationally and inferentially obtained soil property data without the disadvantages
Digital soil mapping: bridging research, environmental application, and operation
Digital Soil Mapping is the creation and the population of a geographically referenced soil database. It is generated at a given resolution by using field and laboratory observation methods coupled
Homosoil, a Methodology for Quantitative Extrapolation of Soil Information Across the Globe
In many places in the world, soil information is difficult to obtain and can be non-existent. When no detailed map or soil observation is available in a region of interest, we have to extrapolate
Mapping continuous depth functions of soil carbon storage and available water capacity
