The right soils tool for the job

Soil data are gathered for many different reasons, each with their own specialist techniques. But wherever they are from, most data finish up in a few key databases managed by Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research.

Choose from the tools below. Short descriptions are provided to help you understand what a specific tool is about. If you are still unsure which tool is the right one for you, why not try our tools finder to narrow down your choice?
