Michael Blaschek is a research associate and PhD candidate of the Department of Geography at Kiel University, Germany. His main research interests are the development of spatial data infrastructures and the realisation of digital soil mapping projects. The latter require proper sampling strategies and the awarded poster presents an example of considering readily available continuous information on soil forming factors as stratifying variables for selecting soil sample locations in an undulating river catchment in southern Sardinia (Italy).
