This map pinpoints the different types of soil found in Brazil. It gathers information and knowledge produced for more than 50 years of soil sciency in Brazil and for the first time uses the nomenclature and specifications recommended by the Embrapa´s Brazilian System of Soil Classification - SBCS (1999), reflecting the advanced stage of the technical-scientific knowledge of tropical soils by the Brazilian scientific community. The exploratory surveys of soils produced by the RadamBrasil Project along the 1970s and 1980s have been used, as well as other detailed studies of soils mainly produced by Embrapa and the IBGE.
