Gridded Soil Landscapes of Canada This dataset is a rasterized version of the Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC) dataset. Soil attributes in this dataset have been collated from SLC map polygons and follow the GlobalSoilMap.net standards and specifications at specified depth increments extending over the agricultural portion of Canada. Weighted averages of soil attribute properties are generated from existing soil horizon information to conform to recognized fixed depth increments. Soil attribute weighted means are calculated by using all the soil components based on their areal extent within each SLC polygon. The weighted mean averages of attributes are spatially represented by the grid along with the lowest and highest attribute values found within each polygon. 2016-03-01 2018-05-15 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada infocansis@AGR.GC.CA Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologySoil taxonomyAgricultureLand managementRural environment Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/soilLandscapesOfCanada90mGrid/en/ISO_19131_Gridded_SLC_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/soilLandscapesOfCanada90mGrid/fr/Pedo_paysages_quadrilles_du_Canada_-_SPC.pdf Versioning of GlobalSoilMap.net raster property maps for the North American NodePDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/soilLandscapesOfCanada90mGrid/en/Versioning%20of%20GlobalSoilMap.net%20raster%20property%20maps.pdf Gridded Soil Landscapes of CanadaGeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/geo/soilLandscapesOfCanada90mGrid/tif/gridded_slc_90m.zip
