Global Digital 1-Degree Soil Type and Surface Slope

Global data for soil type, texture, surface slope and other properties, at a 1 degree resolution. Based on FAO soil maps (1974) and on Matthews vegetation dataset (DS765.0. [http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds765.0/]). Has more details about soil than the Wilson dataset (DS767.0 [http://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds767.0/]) (from Zobler, 1986 files). See NASA Technical Memorandum 100685, Staub and Rosenzweig.
