GLOSIS: Progress and plans

  1. 1. The Global Soil Information System (GLOSIS): progress and plans Rik van den Bosch, Director ISRIC -World Soil Information GSP Plenary Assembly, 7 June 2019
  2. 2. Main tasks: Establishment of an enduring and authoritative global system to monitor forecast the condition of the Earth’s soil resources. • To inform Status of the World Soil Resources Report • To inform country reporting to UN bodies • To support development of thematic map products • To facilitate national decision making • Capacity building through joint development The Pillar 4 Implementation Plan
  3. 3. GLOSIS products GloSIS: • Soil profile databases (Tier 1,Tier 2) • Global polygon coverage, as replacement of FAO/UNESCO SMotW, 1:5M • Global Grids: • Harmonized World Soil Database, version 2 • Fine-resolution grid of soil properties, version 0 (collation of grids, 1km) • Fine resolution grid of soil properties, version 1 (harmonized, <1km) Guidelines and capacity development for implementation. SoilSTAT: • Foreseen system for monitoring, forecasting and status reporting of the soil resource. • Addition to the FAOSTAT family of reporting systems.
  4. 4. • Infrastructure bringing together soil information collected by (national) institutions in a de-centralized way. • GLOSIS is to be a federation of soil information systems. • Source institutions retain their data and control access; data sharing according to data policy of data providers. • Implementation that is lightweight, easy to deploy, based on open source • Should empower data providers to develop and maintain their own soil information system. • Soil data needs to be easily findable, accessible, and available in formats that can be readily used for a wide range of purposes. Key concepts
  5. 5. The challenge Standardisation and harmonisation in collection, storage and exchange is needed Slide courtesy: Peter Wilson (CSIRO)
  6. 6. GLOSIS: connecting users with providers
  7. 7. Harmonisation
  8. 8. Participation levels
  9. 9. GLOSIS Implementation Implementation period: 2017 – 2020. Coordinated by GSP Secretariat (FAO) and GSP Soil Data Facility (ISRIC – World Soil Information), with contributions from Pillar 4Working Group, Pillar 5, soil information experts. General timeline GloSIS: • 2017: SDF appointed, general work plan presented during INSII 3 for implementing GloSIS. • 2018: development technical specifications of GLOSIS and its data products • 2019: implementation and testing • 2020: population and capacity building
  10. 10. Progress 2018-2019 • Developing technical specification documents (finalizing): • GLOSIS design (approved by INSII, Nov 2018) • Tier 1 andTier 2 soil profile databases (approved by INSII, Nov 2018) • Implementation (ongoing): • GLOSIS data exchange/interoperability: developing a web service from a (dummy) soil database based on state-of-the-art standards (WFS 3.0, linked data) from the Open Geospatial Consortium. • Developing a GLOSIS reference node prototype • Establishing a ‘specialist workgroup’:Wageningen Environmental Research, Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research (NZ), CSIRO (AU), BGR (DE), ISRIC, FAO (Technical development workshop 17-18 June). • Pilot implementation: test phase
  11. 11. Building the GLOSIS community • Technical developers: • Possibility to influence development • Forefront of technology • Pilot with software – parallel development • Early adopters / interested parties: • Development costs own SIS greatly reduced • Interoperable system with other countries and institutes • Facilitates harmonisation within country • Complements current initiatives
  12. 12. Why participate in GloSIS? • Soil information system components are developed that are ready for use, open source, easy to implement -> this is a big efficiency gain • Flexible system for all development levels • Comes with capacity building • Basis for national derived products (SOC, erosion, etc..) • Useful for informing policy and decisions within country and between countries (borders and international studies) • Standardisation of data is a one time investment with big efficiency returns in future analyses/reporting • Supports global efforts
  13. 13. Concerns • Continuity /sustainability • Funding • ISRIC/Soil Data Facility • Adopters (countries) have limited capacity for all GSP activities • Link developments in countries to GLOSIS (technical) development
