Hello there,
 I downloaded the EU soil polygon data from the following link,
https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/soil-type, but the soil type is mentioned only by Soil ID and I can not find the Soil ID description, means which ID present which soil type. Could you please tell me where to find this information?

Dear M. 'BilalT',

Please find the latest version of a soil type map on the following link: https://esdac.jrc.ec.europa[…]0-vector-and-attribute-data

See also under “Additional Information” at our website which you had visited.
The database contains soil mapping units SMU (polygons) with only few property data, while most soil properties including soil types are assigned to soil typological units STU (no spatial extend; however, %-area proportions within SMUs).
In order to create a map of soil types, users usually use the soil type of the dominant STU.

We hope that this information may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
