Estimates of soil pH, as measured in a 1:5 water solution, for the 0 – 7.5 cm depth interval. The values of this layer represent estimates for the centre of a 100 m x 100 m (1 ha) grid covering all of New Zealand, with the exception of areas that do not have soils. The layer was generated using a 3 dimensional quantile regression forest model, that leverages a range of spatial predictors, including land use, topography and climate layers.

More detailed information about the model used is provided in the publication: National Scale 3D Mapping of Soil pH Using a Data Augmentation Approach, Remote Sens. 2020, 12(18), 2872;
