Open Project

An Open Soil Spectroscopy library based on the Open Source Software

The application of advanced soil spectroscopy techniques can fill the gap in accessing high-resolution spatial and temporal soil data streams to meet the demand of today’s data-driven agriculture.

In the SoilSpec4GG project, OpenGeoHub leads the development of the OSSL DB, R packages and web-services.
