Visualising Australasia's Soils

Welcome to Visualising Australasia's Soils (VAS) - a place to discover and share soils information, activities and research from Australia and New Zealand.

VAS is a community resource and welcomes your feedback, input and contribution. VAS brings together (federates) soil related datasets and information created and managed by government agencies, organisations, community groups and individuals.

We encourage anyone wishing to share soil information to contact us to explore options for visualising your data on VAS.

VAS is a Soil CRC initiative led by Federation University Australia (CeRDI).
