Soil quality - Digital exchange of soil-related data - Amendment 1 (ISO 28258:2013/Amd 1:2019)

This International Standard describes how to digitally exchange soil-related data. It aims to facilitate the exchange of valid, clearly described and specified soil-related data between individuals and organizations via digital systems, and enables any soil data producer, holder or user to find and transfer data in an unambiguous way. This International Standard contains definitions of features, several parameter specifications and encoding rules that allow consistent and retrievable data exchange. It also allows the explicit georeferencing of soil data by building on other International Standards, thus facilitating the use of soil data within geographical information systems (GIS). Because soil data are of various origins and are obtained according to a huge variety of description and classification systems, this International Standard provides no attribute catalogue, but a flexible approach to the unified encoding of soil data by implementing the provisions of ISO 19156 observations and measurements (OM) for use in soil science.

Soil quality — Digital exchange of soil-related data
AMENDMENT 1
Introduction
Replace Figure 1 with the following one:
Figure 1 — Common data exchanges in soil quality
Clause 1
Add the following paragraph at the end of the second paragraph:

"(Meta-)Data about the quality of soil information can be included according to ISO 19157."

Clause 3
At the end of definition 3.1, add the following note:

"Note 2 to entry: ISO 19156:2011 uses the term specimen for what is called a sample in soil science."

In Note 1 of 3.20, replace the term “profile information” by “soil profile information” as follows:

"Note 1 to entry: All types of plots only provide locality, but not soil information itself. For example, a

borehole is the location where you gather the information to abstract a soil profile information from."

In 3.33, replace the term “profile” by “soil profile” in the definition, as follows:

"excavation prepared to carry out soil profile descriptions, sampling, and/or field tests"

4.1

In the first paragraph, replace the term “soil quality data” by “soil-related data” as follows:

"This International Standard is specifically made for the exchange of soil-related data. It does

not deal with the nevertheless very common use and exchange data from other disciplines, like

geotechnics, geo-information, or groundwater investigation and management."

In the fourth paragraph, replace the term “soil quality data” by “soil-related data” as follows:

"If soil-related data defined according to this International Standard are combined with other kinds

of data, the soil-related part shall be performed, using the XML namespace “ISO 28258”."

In the last paragraph but one, replace the term “soil quality data” by “soil-related data” and the term

“soil quality information” by “soil-related information” as follows:

"Clause 5 provides the information model for the exchange of soil-related data used in this

International Standard. All soil-related information shall (eventually) refer to a specific place

(point, location, mapping unit) in or under the surface of the earth. For all geographical information,

the ISO 19100 family of International Standards is used."
4.2

Replace the title “Requirements worked out” by "Provisions for flexible adaptation".

Replace the first paragraph with the following:

"This International Standard requires that the exchange of soil-related data uses an information

model based on ISO 19156. The general model of ISO 19156 is adapted to soil-related data;

maintaining flexibility as regards the attribute parameters."

"d) The OM_Process is restricted to PreparationProcess."

"e) FeatureType of Observation: featureOfInterest is restricted to Site, Plot, SoilProfile, ProfileElement,

and SoilSpecimen including all their subclasses. It means that only properties of these feature types

may be observed."

"f) FeatureType of SF_SamplingFeature: sampledFeature is restricted to Site, Plot, SoilProfile, and

ProfileElement including all their subtypes."
5.2.3
In Tables 1 and 2, replace the term “Profile” by “SoilProfile”.
Replace the last paragraph with the following:

"An observation may be done only on observable properties of any feature of interest; however,

features of interest are restricted to Site, Plot, SoilProfile, ProfileElement (i. e. Layer and Horizon),

and SoilSpecimen, including all their subtypes. General observable properties introduced by this

model are listed in Table 2. Additional observable properties may be introduced by a data provider.

Replace the title “Profile description” by “Soil profile description”.
In the first paragraph, replace the term “profile” by “soil profile” as follows:

"The submodel soil profile description contains and relates the typical soil scientific concepts of

soil profile, layer and soil horizon. The soil profile is an abstract, ordered set of soil horizons and/

or layers. Horizons develop in layers which in turn have been developed through geogenesis or

anthropogenic action. Furthermore, layers can be used to describe common characteristics of a set

of adjoining horizons. Horizons may be associated with the layer in which they have been developed

through pedogenesis. Because layers and horizons share the same basic properties (i.e. both have

upper and lower depth information and have a position in the order within the soil profile), both

are subclasses of the feature type ProfileElement. See Table 8."
In Table 8, replace the term “Profile” by “SoilProfile”.

C.1.1
Replace the fourth paragraph with the following:

"This International Standard expects that every data provider or anyone who needs an exchange

format for soil-related data extends SoilML classes with properties which are suitable for his or

her data model, or simply fill the attributes for which (s)he has data. This extension of the SoilML

UML model shall also appear in the XSD. Therefore, the data provider (or the one who defines the

exchange format) has to create two different kinds of files:"
C.1.2
Replace “Profile” by “SoilProfile” in the 8 list item.
C.2
Replace the last example with the following:

"EXAMPLE 2 See the xlink: href = ”#plot1” listing that enables linking the plot1 from the

project1."
C.3.2
Replace the last but second paragraph and the example with the following:

"Both ways of expression incorporate definition of units of measure, i.e. the uom concept similarly

to other International Standards (e.g. ISO 19115-1 and ISO/TS 19139). In other words, each depth

element presented above contains the mandatory uom attribute.

"a) Property SoilObservation.featureOfInterest is restricted to Site, Plot, SoilProfile, ProfileElement,

and SoilSpecimen including all their subtypes."
C.5.2.1

In the sentence before EXAMPLE, replace the term “Profile” by “SoilProfile” as follows:

"However, the set of observable properties can and should be extended with provider-specific

properties related to Site, Plot, SoilProfile, ProfileElement and/or SoilSpecimen, including their

subtypes."

In the sentence after EXAMPLE, replace the term “Profile” by “SoilProfile” as follows:

"Observed property can be a simple attribute as well as an association role, so it is possible to

observe Plot.elevation as well as Plot.profile. Observation of a Plot.profile can be considered as

related not only to SoilProfile itself, but also to its property values (elements, meaning Layers and

Horizons, their order, depths, etc.)."
In Table C.3, replace the term “Profile” by “SoilProfile”.
C.5.3.2

In the last sentence before EXAMPLE 3, replace the term “Profile” by “SoilProfile” as follows:

"In the case of object types (e.g. sq: SoilProfile, sq: ProfileElement), the duplicity should be avoided

using the by-reference mode."

PreparationProcess

Preparation process is a subtype of OM_Process (also known as SF_Process). It is a process

used to prepare the specimen. It has one subtype TransportAndStorage.




















project

The project holds the background information for soil studies. A project does not describe

the soil as such. It is of importance to exchange project data along with other soil

quality data in order to know the aim and circumstances of data collection. The project

provides the context of the data collection as a prerequisite for the proper use or reuse

of these data.

The project information also may be the starting point to retrieve further information

that cannot be exchanged using soil quality. For example, the name of an author or the

project number may be the key for finding a report or decision document.

sq:Project







Depth is a datatype which can both simple depth (e.g. 60cm) or depth extent (e.g.

60-70cm).

Depth is implemented as a choice of GML Quantity or GML QuantityExtent.
























soil specimen

Soil specimen is a subtype of SF_Specimen. Soil specimen may be taken in the Site, Plot,

SoilProfile, or ProfileElement including their subtypes.



















soil observation
Soil observation is a subtype of OM_Observation.
[ISO 19156]

An observation is an act associated with a discrete time instant or period through which a

number, term or other symbol is assigned to a phenomenon. It involves application of a

specified procedure, such as a sensor, instrument, algorithm or process chain. The

procedure may be applied in situ, remotely, or ex situ with respect to the sampling

location. The result of an observation is an estimate of the value of a property of some

feature. Use of a common model allows observation data using different procedures to be

combined unambiguously.

















site
defined area which is subject to a soil quality investigation

A site is a defined, spatially extended area and provides the real world object to which

soil data are related. It represents the spatial link between point, linear and areal soil

observations on the one hand and its environment (e.g. the landscape or larger spatial

objects) on the other. As such, it provides the possibility to connect data on spatially

extended phenomena, e.g. vegetation, with point, linear and areal sampling features

(plots). It also allows for the possibility to combine the results of (quasi-)synchronous

repetitions of observations of the same kind. The site is furthermore the time link

between repeated soil observations, e.g. in the framework of a soil monitoring. Generally,

within one single project, a site is spatially invariant, but contains all plots for

single or repeated observations and samplings, both related to one point in time or

several points in time. Very often, the data obtained on a site are considered to

originate from one single point in further data processing and evaluation.

In terms of OM, each site is a sampled feature of its plots which are spatial sampling

features. Site serves also as a typical feature of interest of soil observations. documentation>

Replace Figure 9 with the following figure:

The submodel soil profile description contains and relates the typical soil scientific concepts of soil

profile, layer and soil horizon. The soil profile is an abstract, ordered set of soil horizons and/or

layers. Horizons develop in layers which in turn have been developed through geogenesis or

anthropogenic action. Furthermore, layers can be used to describe common characteristics of a set

of adjoining horizons. Horizons may be associated with the layer in which they have been

developed through pedogenesis. Because layers and horizons share the same basic properties (i.e.

both have upper and lower depth information and have a position in the order within the soil

profile), both are subclasses of the feature type ProfileElement. See Table 8.

Annex C, fourth paragraph
Replace the text with the following:

This International Standard expects that every data provider or anyone who needs an exchange

format for soil-related data extends SoilML classes with properties which are suitable for his or her

data model, or simply fill the attributes for which (s)he has data. This extension of the SoilML UML

model shall also appear in the XSD. Therefore, the data provider (or the one who defines the

exchange format) has to create two different kinds of files:

Both ways of expression incorporate definition of units of measure, i.e. the uom concept similarly to

other International Standards (e.g. ISO 19115 and ISO 19139). In other words, each depth element

presented above contains the mandatory uom attribute.
