AbstractMeetings of European Union Heads of Soil Survey Organisations were held in 1989 and 1994 respectively. Both were followed by publication of monographs describing the state-of-the-art in each of the member countries (Hodgson 1991; Le Bas & Jamagne 1996). Limited progress has been made in Spain since then, except for a proposal for an ambitious macroproject (PNCTA), the prospects for which now seem somewhat uncertain. Readers interested in historical aspects of Spanish pedology and/or soil mapping can refer to studies by Díaz Fierros (1979 and 1997) Mudarra (1989 and 1994); Sunyer (1996), Ibáñez el al. (1991, 1997), Boixadera and Ibáñez, (1996) and Guerra, (1997). This paper describes progress in soil survey from 1994 to 1998 and provides additional information on monitoring and soil databases developed in Spain. Nevertheless, some Spanish soil databases arising from some initiatives in Pan-European programmes are not included in the discussion here due to their particular scope. The Spanish contribution to the ICP Forest programme, recently published on a CD-ROM that holds morphological, taxonomic and analytical information corresponding to 453 soil profiles, is a case in point (Montoya & López-Arias, 1998).
