Abstract: Developing the Version 4 of the Soil Geographical Database at scale 1:1,000,000 aims that providing a harmonised set of soil parameters covering Eurasia and Mediterranean countries for use in agro-meteorological and environmental modelling at regional, national, and continental levels. In this context, the expansion into the Mediterranean Basin will eventually include Turkey. In order to extend the Soil Geographical Database (SGDBE) to the countries of Mediterranean Basin, the preparation of soil geographical database of Turkey at 1:1 million scales was initiated at the end of 2008. In the current report, the reader will be informed about the preparation of soil geographical database of Turkey compatible with European database and how the Turkish soil data have been integrated the European Soil Database. The implementation of this work has been achieved since we have built a common understanding and nomenclature of soils in Europe and Mediterranean region. A number of attributes have been transformed from local/regional/national soil datasets while some other attributes have been obtained from auxiliary datasets using remote sensing and GIS Techniques.
