Short summary
Soil is an important provider of ecosystem services. Yet this natural resource is being threatened. Professionals, scientists, and decision makers require quality-assessed soil data to address issues such as food security, land degradation, and climate change. Procedures for safeguarding, standardising, and subsequently serving of consistent soil data to underpin broad-scale mapping and modelling are described. The data are freely accessible at doi:10.17027/isric-wdcsoils.20160003.
