FAO has made an effort to make Soil Legacy data and information available for their users. 1228 soil and land legacy maps are now available.

Since the early 1950's, FAO has been committed to provide technical assistance to member countries in various soil applications. Hundreds of soil survey field projects have been carried out over the years and a considerable number of soil survey reports have been prepared and published as grey literature. Today, these legacy reports are digitally available here.
