Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia

Researchers from across Australia have joined together to develop detailed digital maps of the country’s soil and landscape attributes.

The Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia provides relevant, consistent, comprehensive, nation-wide data in an easily-accessible format.

The datasets are a first approximation (version 1) of national scale maps designed to be updated and improved over time as resources, new data and improved methods and technologies become available.

The Soil and Landscape Grid provides a range of soil and landscape attribute products.

Using the best available data from existing databases, new sensor measurements and novel spatial modelling, the Grid presents fine spatial resolution (3 arc-seconds or approximately 90 x 90 m pixels) digital soil and landscape attribute maps. Included in the data are estimates of reliability. These maps are consistent with the specifications of the GlobalSoilMap project and the data are managed as part of the Australian Soil Resource Information System (ASRIS). View the maps or explore the soil and landscape attributes in the ‘Product details’ menu above. You can also download the data in different ways through the ‘Get the data’ menu on this website.
