A soils-focussed information system for England and Wales

Cranfield University

LandIS, the “Land Information System”, is a substantial environmental information system operated by Cranfield University, UK, designed to contain soil and soil-related information for England and Wales including spatial mapping of soils at a variety of scales, as well as corresponding soil property and agro-climatological data. LandIS is the largest system of its kind in Europe and is recognised by UK Government as the definitive source of national soils information.

The Cranfield Soil and AgriFood Institute (CSAI), incorporating the National Soil Resources Institute (NSRI), is a centre within Cranfield University, and maintains this extensive geographic database of land-related data, covering England and Wales. Outlined below and within this site are a number of ways by which you can access this information.
