Two interesting sources for soil data and maps

Many biophysical modeling efforts require soil data. There are (at least) two interesting sources that provide such information.

The first one is GlobalSoilMap.net, an initiative which seeks to create a new digital soil map of the world, applying state-of-the-art soil mapping technologies.

The second one is the European Soil Portal of the Joint Research Center of the European Commission. The European Soil Portal provides access to a very rich compilation of soil related information, among them datasets, soil maps and a map viewing application. The great thing about this portal is that it not only focuses on Europe, but also covers other parts of the planet, like for example Africa.
