Standardised soil profile data for the world (WoSIS snapshot - September 2019) N. H. Batjes, E. Ribeiro, and A. J. M. van Oostrum

Short summary
This dataset provides quality-assessed and standardised soil data to support digital soil mapping and environmental applications at broadscale levels. The underpinning soil profiles were shared by a wide range of data providers. Special attention was paid to the standardisation of soil property definitions, analytical method descriptions and property values. We present measures for geographic accuracy and a first approximation for the uncertainty associated with the various analytical methods.
