ISIS Stakeholder Workshop: Addressing Soil Data Gaps

The overall objective of the ISIS Research Project is to produce a harmonized soil map of Ireland at a scale of 1:250,000 with an associated web-based soil information system in the public domain. The Soil Information System could be further enhanced by building in soils attributes maps into it. Examples include: soil carbon, soil drainage, soil depth, pH, etc. A prototype of the Soil information System will be presented and the various soil attributes will be discussed at this morning workshop.

This workshop is aimed at soil data users.

Please ensure that you complete the Soil Data Needs Survey before the end of August 2013, to ensure that your requirements for soils data are included in the discussion (Go to the Soil Data Needs Survey).
