  3. 3. PORTUGUESE SOIL PARTNERSHIP (PSP) https://parceriaptsolo.dgadr.gov.pt/ The PSP, has been the first national partnership to be implemented in Europe (2014), and is now constituted by 30 Partners, covering Universities, Research entities, national and regional governmental bodies, and farmer associations related to agriculture and forestry.

  8. 8. ACTIVITIES SOIL INFORMATION SYSTEM GLOSIS NODE (1) STRATEGY FOR SOIL UPDATED INFORMATION SYSTEM 1st Phase - Reorganization and uniformization of available cartography  Standardisation of 1:100 000 scale soil maps (TMAD, EDM and ZIC) regarding the limits of different polygons and thematic contents. Uniformization of soil classification on the three maps, in accordance with parameters adopted by the WRB 2014.  Ensure compatibility of the limits and Soil Classification (Portuguese Soil classification), on the soil map units, from SROA/CNROA SOIL maps, scale 1:25 000; 2nd Phase - Build up of the Soil Map of Portugal, scale 1:500 000, by using the WRB 2014 3rd Phase - Build up of a soil data base, and organization of the soil information supply on a WEB SIG platform, a node of GLOSIS.
