FAO Land and Water Division ( NRL) is making an effort to make Soil Legacy data and information available for their users. In that regard, FAO has just finished uploading 1228 soil and land legacy maps (mainly soil maps and also land use, geological and land cover legacy maps) from the world (Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Bangladesh, Benin, Bolivia, Burundi, Botswana, Brazil, British Guiana, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, Chad, Chile, China, Colombia, Comoros, Congo, Ivory Coast, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Ethiopia, French Guiana, Gabon, Gambia, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Mozambique, Namibia, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, Papa New Guinea, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Swaziland, Syria, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam, Zambia, Zimbabwe).
The maps can be downloaded freely from GeoNetwork following this link: http://www.fao.org/geonetwork/srv/en/main.home under the Soils and Soil Resources section.
Please note that these maps were scanned as .jpg and then uploaded with standard metadata (they are not geo-referenced as this was not our aim).
FAO will continue working in this activity and will include Soil Profile Legacy data soon.
