Land Capability Maps

Land capability maps use soil data along with information on other properties, such as climate or landscape, to classify the land for a specific purpose such as the Land Capability for Agriculture Classification (LCA) – an assessment of the capacity of land to produce food.

Note that the CICES classification will not work for a diverse group of data sets.
