Agri-Informatics, Cranfield University

The new Agri-Informatics research building provides a permanent home for assets of national and international importance: the Land Information System (LandIS) on the soils of England and Wales, the National Soil Inventory (NSI), as well as ‘legacy’ data covering the globe in the World Soil Survey Archive and Catalogue (WoSSAC). These resources are unique; brought together for the first time, and supplemented with dedicated research facilities, Agri-Informatics now provides the opportunity to properly exploit these assets.
