Soils Portal | Pātaka Oneone

As part of the World Soil Day celebrations in early December 2021 we launched a new version of the Soils Portal. It offers better guidance to understand and use our wide range of soil information services, our digital mapping capabilities including Smap Online and the Pacific Soils Portal, soil data from national to local scales, and soil publications. It also features new content, and a soil news section. The Portal caters for a wide range of users – land managers, resource managers, teachers and students – anyone from a soil scientist to a soil “beginner”.
