Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia


What is the Facility?

The Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia provides relevant, consistent, comprehensive, nation-wide data soil and landscape 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 is managed as part of the Australian Soil Resource Information System (ASRIS).
