Predictive Soil Mapping with R book

Predictive Soil Mapping (PSM) is based on applying statistical and/or machine learning techniques to fit models for the purpose of producing spatial and/or spatiotemporal predictions of soil variables i.e. maps of soil properties and classes at different resolutions. It is a multidisciplinary field combining statistics, data science, soil science, physical geography, remote sensing, geoinformation science and number of other sciences. Predictive Soil Mapping with R is an Open Access book on using state of the art Statistical and Machine Learning techniques to produce more accurate and more usable maps of soil variables.
