Australian Soil Classification Map


We used Digital Soil Mapping (DSM) technologies combined with the real-time collations of soil attribute data from TERN's recently developed Soil Data Federation System, to produce a map of Australian Soil Classification Soil Order classes with quantified estimates of mapping reliability at a 90m resolution.

The observed data used to produce this map was obtained from state and federal soil survey agencies.
The work was supported by TERN.
CSIRO maintains and makes the data through the Australian Soil Resource Information System.

The map gives an estimate of the spatial distribution of soil types across Australia.


The map was produced as per methods described at -
