NSW eastern forest soil condition: Spatio-temporal data cube maps

This dataset created by the University of Sydney, includes time series digital soil map products of soil organic carbon (SOC) between January 1990 and December 2020 for the Regional Forest Agreement regions of eastern NSW. Modelling was completed using a data cube platform incorporating machine learning space-time framework and geospatial technologies. Products provide estimates of SOC concentrations and associated trends through time. Also important covariates required to drive this spatio-temporal modelling are identified using the Recursive Feature Elimination algorithm (RFE), which including a range of predictors that vary in space, time and space and time.

Full description of the digital soil maps and methods are presented in: Moyce MC, Gray JM, Wilson BR, Jenkins BR, Young MA, Ugbaje SU, Bishop TFA, Yang X, Henderson LE, Milford HB, Tulau MJ, 2021. Determining baselines, drivers and trends of soil health and stability in New South Wales forests: NSW Forest Monitoring & Improvement Program, Final report v1.1 for NSW Natural Resources Commission by NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and University of Sydney.

The metadata's data packages section includes project scripts and code, final project report and an external Cloudstor link to download the predicted SOC map products,
