Download SoilMapp now so you can have soil information at your fingertips.
Find out what's beneath your feet with SoilMapp which taps into the best available soil information from Australia’s national soil databases. You can find out about the likely types of soil near you or you can look anywhere across the country.
Discover the soil’s secrets, how it holds water, its clay content, acidity and other attributes related to agricultural productivity and land management.
Australia's soils are one of the country's most valuable natural assets, critical to sustainable food production, biodiversity conservation, water quality and human health.
Having access to the best available soil and land information assists improved land management decisions, sustaining Australia’s soils into the future.
SoilMapp for iPad enables you to:
SoilMapp for iPad provides direct access to best national soil data and information from the Australian Soil Resource Information System (ASRIS) and ApSoil, the database behind the agricultural computer model: APSIM.
SoilMapp is designed to make soil information more accessible to help Australian farmers, consultants, planners, natural resource managers, researchers and people interested in soil.
CSIRO’s SoilMapp is available from the App Store. Click the Download on the App Store button at the top of the page or search ‘CSIRO’ or ‘SoilMapp' on the App Store.
Help information is available within the app but also from the SoilMapp wiki.
You can also contact the SoilMapp team at: email@example.com
CSIRO encourages soil experts to help improve SoilMapp. You can help by confirming that the selected soil (or close variant) occurs at the pinned location. The information will be returned to ASRIS and will assist with map validation.
Users of APSIM, the farm system computer model, such as farm advisers and crop modellers can access the most relevant data on soil water characteristics through SoilMapp. They can then modify it for their situation and upload it to their ApSoil data file for their later use in APSIM.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more details on how you can assist SoilMapp.
SoilMapp was developed by researchers and information technology specialists from CSIRO working through the Australian Collaborative Land Evaluation Program (ACLEP) and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) project: Doing it better, doing it smarter-managing soil water in Australian agriculture.
