WoSIS - Cooperating institutions and experts

Share on:

The development of WoSIS (World Soil Information Service) has been made possible thanks to the contributions and shared knowledge of a steadily growing number of data providers, including soil survey organisations, research institutes and individual experts. We gratefully acknowledge their contributions!

There are still many soil geographical and soil taxonomic gaps in WoSIS. Should you desire to contribute soil profile data to the global WoSIS effort please contact us.
