Short summary
The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) is one of the most used hydrological models worldwide. Lack of soil datasets in a SWAT-ready format hinders application of this model. This work discusses the preparation of a soil dataset for the agricultural extent of Canada compiled from the publicly available Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC) database. Estimations of the hydrologic soil groups and erodibility factor variables not reported in the SLC database are important contributions of this work.
