Providing free access to soil data
anytime anywhere...  for everyone


SoilInfo is an App for mobile devices that allows accessing spatial predictions of soil properties and classes (SoilGrids layers) in a simple format i.e. as soil profile depth curve plots or tabular summaries. The main idea of SoilInfo is to provide access to standard soil properties directly on the field. The future releases of SoilInfo will focus on improving the accuracy and spatial detail of the existing soil and background maps and on adding functionality for entering new soil profile data.

SoilInfo App is one of the last components of the Global Soil Information Facilities (GSIF), which is developed at ISRIC as a framework and platform to support widespread, open collaboration in the assembly, collation and production of global soil information.
