Introduction
I am Yiyi Sulaeman. My current project is about testing digital soil mapping (DSM) methodologies and tailoring them with Indonesia landscape. one output of this project is technical guidance for using DSM in routine national mapping program. DSM studies have been conducting in small region. the remaining challenge is to disseminate the technology to others especially in speeding up national mapping program in Indonesia.
