TERRASTAT is based on earlier FAO work on country data analysis of problem soils, drylands, steeplands and land degradation issues.

This publication comprises of 2 CD-ROMs containing computer programmes which display and export different biophysical themes ranging from specific soil constraints and climatic parameters to land degradation status at national and global level; linked to population density data in each of the biophysical zones identified.
