UK Soil Observatory launched

10 April 2014

The UK Soil Observatory (UKSO), launched today in London, is a ‘big data’ initiative that provides a portal for unified UK soils data and information. Until recently soils data, knowledge and expertise was scattered across a wide range of institutions. UKSO will give improved access to data and information including fully described data sets, analytical tools and analyses allowing users to access information for novel research, for public and private decision making and for general interest groups. The UKSO has a specific objective of providing these data for free where possible.
