Description

Soil fertility capability classification derived using slope, chemical, and physical soil properties. For more information about this layer, please visit this page.

The classes for the 'fcc' band apply to pixel values that must be back-transformed with x modulo 3000.

In areas of dense jungle (generally over central Africa), model accuracy is low and therefore artifacts such as banding (striping) might be seen.

Soil property predictions were made by Innovative Solutions for Decision Agriculture Ltd. (iSDA) at 30 m pixel size using machine learning coupled with remote sensing data and a training set of over 100,000 analyzed soil samples.

Further information can be found in the FAQ and technical information documentation. To submit an issue or request support, please visit the iSDAsoil site.
