Visualising Australasia's Soils:
Extending the soil data federation (VAS Phase 2)
The Visualising Australasia’s Soils (VAS) project aims to provide Soil CRC participants with access to considerable volumes of reliable quality soil data. It will be sourced from a federation of soil data custodians who share their data according to the rules they set, therefore maintaining control.
For generations, Australasian farmers have gathered and shared knowledge on how to grow better crops. In the 21st century it makes sense to use technology to improve our agricultural know-how and profitability. Visualising Australasia’s Soils (VAS) aims to do this by providing Australasian farmers, agronomy practitioners, agricultural researchers and agribusinesses with an online platform to access data, information and knowledge on Australasian soils.
