Soil Data: Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD) for the Great Lakes (resolution: 30 arcseconds)

Soil data were downloaded from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD) v1.2. This dataset is a 30 seconds of arc resolution which corresponds to about 1km at the equator. More details on this dataset can be found at http://www.fao.org/soils-portal/soil-survey/soil-maps-and-databases/harmonized-world-soil-database-v12/en/. The region of interest (Great Lakes) was cropped and data converted into ASCII and NetCDF formats.
