METADATA
TitleNational Soil Maps (EuDASM)
CreatorJRC - Institute for Environment and Sustainability; ISRIC – World Soil Information
DescriptionEuropean Digital Archive on Soil Maps of the World (EuDASM) provides access to digital versions of soil maps and supporting information. The initial objective of the Archive is to transfer soil information into digital format, with the maximum resolution possible, to preserve the information of paper maps that are vulnerable to deterioration. The archive provides a platform for storing soil maps from around the world and making the information readily accessible. Organisations that maintain soil map archives in paper form, and wishing to conserve this information by transferring it into digital form, are invited to join the EuDASM programme. EuDASM was initiated by the Institute of Environment and Sustainability (IES) in the European Commission (Italy) and ISRIC – World Soil Information in 2004.
