ANZSoilML

ANZSoilML is an application schema that specifies a set of feature-types and supporting structures for information used in the Australian and New Zealand soil sciences.

ANZSoilML is scoped to the information specified in:

AUS: Australian Soil and Land Survey Field Handbook, Third edition, 2009, The National Committee on Soil and Terrain.
NZL: Soil Description Handbook, Revised edition, 1995, Milne, J.D.G., Clayden, B., Singleton, P.L., Wilson, A.D.

ANZSoilML is primarily concerned with observed properties of Soils and associated Landscapes.

ANZSoilML is factored into a set of sub-packages that are maintained separately.

ANZSoilML was derived from OzSoilML, which was developed under the auspices of the Australian Collaborative Land Evaluation Program (ACLEP) http://www.clw.csiro.au/aclep/

As of version 2.0.1 ANZSoilML includes the Global Soil Map Mark-up Language (GSMML, see below). ANZSoilML - GSM has been developed by members of the Oceania node of the GlobalSoilMap.net project (http://globalsoilmap.net/) - it conforms to version 2.3 of the GlobalSoilMap.net Specifications (http://globalsoilmap.net/specifications). GSMML has been modified to use ANZSoilML soil profile and layer classes.
