Soil and erosion information are among the most valuable data for environmentalists and supporters of development of agricultural activities. However, there are still no standards regarding data collection. Currently, a project is being conducted that is aimed at gaining data related to the world’s status. The Europe Hun Soter is also being under preparation and implementation.
Various efforts have been made over a period of one hundred fifty years to record soil data in Hungary. The Kreybig Project (1932-51) is one of the most prominent of such attempts. This project, which in practical terms is similar to other methods and especially to GIS, paved the way for launching the Soter in 1986. This international project, which has been conducted for presentation of main numerical data related to soil and land features on a scale of 1: 1,000,000, combines the data from common and modern technologies in order to make digital maps. The main Pilot Soter data are presented around the world with the hope that they will eventually lead to creation of stable and homogeneous soil erosion data that can be easily updated.
