Predicted USDA soil orders at 250 m (probabilities)

Tomislav Hengl; Travis Nauman

Distribution of the USDA orders (12) based on machine learning predictions of great groups (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1476844) from global compilation of soil profiles. To learn more about soil orders and great groups please refer to the Illustrated Guide to Soil Taxonomy - NRCS - USDA. Processing steps are described in detail here. Antartica is not included.

To access and visualize maps use: OpenLandMap.org

If you discover a bug, artifact or inconsistency in the maps, or if you have a question please use some of the following channels:

All files internally compressed using "COMPRESS=DEFLATE" creation option in GDAL. File naming convention:

  • sol = theme: soil,
  • order = variable: USDA order,
  • usda.histosols = determination method: USDA soil taxonomy class Histosols,
  • p = probability,
  • 250m = spatial resolution / block support: 250 m,
  • s0..0cm = vertical reference: soil surface,
  • 1950..2017 = time reference: period 1950-2017,
  • v0.1 = version number: 0.1,
