The SOIL CATALOGUE (Soil Series and Soil Types) is the authorized source
of information on soils of Catalonia available at the Cartographic and
Geologic Institute of Catalonia since 2010 and the Department of
Agriculture of the government of Catalonia from 1993 to 2009.
Soil information transferring with open access for anybody who wants to
use it is one of the services that the Generalitat of Catalonia offers as
a commitment to the transparency and the sustainability, in view that the
land use allocations (agriculture, housing, infrastructure, natural
resources and others), as well as other interventions can be done
according to a scientific knowledge of soils.
The ICGC grants the access to the available soil information, furnishing
products in digital format, so that they can be used in many applications.
