The CSIRO National Soil Site database (Natsoil) currently contains descriptions of over 21, 000 soil site investigations. The data includes morphological descriptions, chemical, physical and mineralog... moreical properties and spectral predictions, along with soil specimen management data. The database and The Australian National Soil Archive provide the foundation for the development of a national soil spectral library and also support TERN Landscapes national soil property modelling through a federated collation of available soil databases.
Data is managed within the SQLServer environment, and made available via a Microsoft Access snapshot on request, which is assigned a new DOI.
Up to date content is also available via an ANZSoilML complex WFS service.
The database schema is based on the SITES V2 national standard. See supporting file.less
Legacy data - Australian Soil Resource Information System - Published 18 Jun 2020
These data provide rasterised layers of edaphic (physical and chemical conditions of the soil) and land surface physiography (landform and geomorphology) attributes hypothesised to explain spatial pat... moreterns in biological diversity at continental scales for immediate use with statistical modelling tools. These data are intended to be used along with a similarly compiled and spatially standardised set of climatic layers (See " 0.01 degree stack of climate layers for continental analysis of biodiversity pattern: version 1.0 " in related materials).NOTE: Full details of the data, with a list of data sources and bibliography, are provided in a PDF file included as part of the data collection.less
Closed DEWHA Harness Cntnnt-wide Bdvrsty - Spatial Environmental Data Preparation - Published 11 Dec 2018
A selection of 9-arcsecond resolution substrate surfaces (soil and landform) for the Australian continent, aggregated from 3-arcsecond source data. These substrate surfaces have been selected because ... morethey have been found to be relevant to biodiversity modelling using generalised dissimilarity modelling. These data are intended to be used along with a similarly compiled and spatially standardised 9-arcsecond gridded climatic layers. See links for related collections. less

Acquired - Legacy data collection - Published 06 Feb 2015
This dataset depicts a national map of available ASS mapping and ASS qualification inferred from surrogate datasets. ASS mapping is classified with a nationally consistent legend that includes risk as... moresessment criteria and correlations between Australian and International Soil Classification Systems.
Existing digital datasets of ASS mapping have been sourced from each coastal state and territory and combined into a single national dataset. Original state classifications have been translated to a common national classification system by the respective creators of the original data and other experts. This component of the Atlas is referred to as the “Coastal” ASS mapping. The remainder of Australia beyond the extent of state ASS mapping has been “backfilled” with a provisional ASS classification inferred from national and state soils, hydrography and landscape coverages. This component is referred to as the “Inland” ASS mapping.
For the state Coastal ASS mapping, the mapping scale of source data ranges from 1:10K aerial photography in SA to 1:250K vegetation mapping in WA and NT, with most East coast mapping being at the 1:100K scale. For the backfilled inferred Inland ASS mapping the base scale is 1:2.5 million (except Tas.) overlaid with 1:250k hydography. As at 06/08, the Tasmanian inland mapping has been re-modelled using superior soil classification map derived from 1:100k landscape unit mapping.
NOTE: This is composite data layer sourced from best available data with polygons depicted at varying scales and classified with varying levels of confidence. Great care must be taken when interpreting this map and particular attention paid to the “map scale” and confidence rating of a given polygon. It is stressed that polygons rated with Confidence = 4 are provisional classifications inferred from surrogate data with no on ground verification. Also some fields contain a “-“, denoting that a qualification was not able to be made, usually because a necessary component of source mapping coverage did not extend to the given polygon.less
