Dr. Andrei Rozanov, Stellenbosch University, South Africa, provided maps of soil research institutions and universities offering soil science in Africa to the International Union of Soil Science (IUSS). IUSS is glad to share them with the soil science community. There are two options to view the map files: a) Install Google Earth Pro desktop on your PC from https://www.google.com/earth/ b) Use https://www.google.com/earth/ directly in Google Chrome browser. Then Click here to read the KML file from Chrome: you can also download the map files from the IUSS website in Chrome: UniversitiesAfrica1.kmz , ResearchAfrica.kmz
The map was compiled from the information available on-line. If you find that some of the information is incorrect (e.g. the exact location of the soil science department is incorrect, the department does not exist, the department exists but does not appear on the map, the department is a research unit and does not offer a soil science degree programme, the link to the department website requires an update) please contact Dr. Andrei Rozanov, Stellenbosch University, South Africa by email: firstname.lastname@example.org to make the necessary corrections.
Apparently, Google Earth is now accessible only via Google Chrome browsers. If you have problems, please refer to Dr Andrei or to the IUSS News Alert September 2018
