Soil and Terrain Database for Latin America and the Caribbean (version 2.0) - scale 1:5 million (SOTERLAC)Entry ID: ISRIC_SOTERLAC_primary_ver2
Abstract: The Soil and Terrain database for Latin America and the Caribbean (SOTERLAC), version 2.0, at scale 1:5 million, replaces version 1.02. The update includes changes in the GIS file and in the attributes database.
The topographic base of the SOTERLAC map was adapted to a version congruent to the Digital Chart of the World.
The SOTERLAC attribute database has changed in respect to the number of ... pedon attributes that can be stored. Contrary to the preceding, compact version, version 2.0 can accommodate all pedon attributes considered in a 1:1 million scale SOTER database.
SOTERLAC forms a part of the ongoing activities of ISRIC, FAO and UNEP to update the world's baseline information on natural resources.The project involved collaboration with national soil institutes from the countries in the region as well as individual experts.
