National Soil Inventory of Scotland

The National Soils Inventory for Scotland (NSIS1) dataset presented here has been collected using sampling points arranged as a 10 km grid. A wide range of attributes are described, measured and analysed for each site.

These range from contextual information describing the surrounding landscape (such as slope and vegetation), down to detailed chemical analyses of each horizon within the soil profile. There are 721 sites in total where soil occurs; where there is no soil at a particular 10 km sampling point, this point has not been included.
