Soil quality - Digital exchange of soil-related data

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 October 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 72
ICS Code (Soil quality and pedology in general): 13.080.01
scope:

This International Standard describes how to digitally exchange soil-related data. It aims to facilitate the exchange of valid, clearly described and specified soil-related data between individuals and organizations via digital systems, and enables any soil data producer, holder or user to find and transfer data in an unambiguous way.

This International Standard contains definitions of features, several parameter specifications and encoding rules that allow consistent and retrievable data exchange. It also allows the explicit georeferencing of soil data by building on other International Standards, thus facilitating the use of soil data within geographical information systems (GIS). Because soil data are of various origins and are obtained according to a huge variety of description and classification systems, this International Standard provides no attribute catalogue, but a flexible approach to the unified encoding of soil data by implementing the provisions of ISO 19156 observations and measurements (OM) for use in soil science. (Meta-)Data about the quality of soil information can be included according to ISO 19157. Note 2 to entry: ISO 19156:2011 uses the term specimen for what is called a sample in soil science.
