In the framework of the eContentplus programme (now called ICT PSP) the GS Soil project opened the GS Soil Portal for retrieval of seamlessly available soil data across Europe. The first testing phase has been successfully finished. Presently we are looking for volunteers further testing of the portal functionalities. We are also inviting all data providers to join our efforts towards a comprehensive soil portal, making soil datasets seamlessly searchable across Europe. In case you are interested please do not hesitate to contact the project coordinator Katharina Feiden.
