What is the water holding capacity of these soils? When studying global issues such as food security or climate change mitigation, researchers and other interested parties often need detailed soil information. ISRIC – World Soil Information, in collaboration with its partners, has developed a wide range of soil-related datasets and webservices that scholars and other stakeholders may use to study such issues.

Data download facility

ISRIC has been working for more than 40 years on datasets and maps at local, national and global scale and at various resolutions. Our site provides access to a data download facility, through which ISRICproject-related data sets can be downloaded. A wider range of information (datasets, reports, scanned maps) can be queried and accessed using ISRIC’s metadata service.
