Service Description: This is the digital dataset which was created by digitising the Soils of Scotland 1:25,000 Soil maps and the Soils of Scotland 1:25,000 Dyeline Masters. The Soils of Scotland 1:25,000 Soil maps were the source documents for the production of the Soils of Scotland 1:63,360 and 1:50,000 published colour map series. The soil map units are based on Soil Associations, Soil Series and Phases which reflect parent material, major soil group, and major soil sub-groups, drainage and (for phases), texture, stoniness, land use, rockiness, topography and organic matter. Phases are not always mapped. In general terms this dataset primarily covers the cultivated land of Scotland but also includes some adjacent upland areas and the Island of Mull and the Ardnamurchan peninsula. While all of the available source documents for this map series have been digitised, additional areas mapped at higher resolution for specific purposes have not been digitised. This data set is the final iteration of a phased revision. This data is Version 10. It supercedes previous phases and versions and it is being released on 27th July 2022. The digitising of the recently added data was funded by the Rural & Environment Science & Analytical Services Division of the Scottish Government.
