Group: Summary

   This data set consists of maps of various soil characteristics for all of 
   Russia. The maps are available as ESRI Shapefiles and they are accompanied by 
   databases of soil profiles and related characteristics. The soil 
   classification Shapefile was generalized from the standard 1:2,500,000 soil 
   map of Russia (Fridland, 1988). Several different soil classifications are 
   presented as well as detailed soil characteristics. Additionally, 
   investigators compiled two databases (.dbf files) of detailed soil 
   characteristics from 234 measured soil profiles. These data were extracted 
   from a larger collection entitled Land Resources of Russia. Data and 
   documentation © 2002 copyright International Institute for Applied Systems 
   Analysis and the Russian Academy of Sciences.
