Abstract

In the framework of the INTERREG II Italy-Albania programme, a new soil information system has been developed by the JRC, covering the territory of the Puglia region and the coastal areas of Albania at scale 1:50 000. Additionally a complete coverage of Albania at scale 1:250 000 has been completed. The system is fully compatible with the existing European Soil Information System (EUSIS). The Soil Information System of the Puglia region is coherent with the document "Soil Geographical Database of Europe - Manual of Procedures (EUR 18092 IT)". This paper gives a description of the methodology applied and a brief description of the main landscape and associated soil.
