Rik van den Bosch, director of ISRIC: “The new site is yet another step to show how seriously we take our mission to serve everyone who needs quality-assessed soil data. We are confident it will also act as a catalyst to engage with new clients interested in making a difference through the application of soil information”.
Highlights of the new ISRIC website are:
- Soil Data Hub for easy search and download of the major ISRIC data products;
- Newly established section for professionals who want to use soil information but need assistance in doing so;
