This paper lists possible developments in predictive soil mapping. Six key tasks are discussed: (1) new spatial prediction algorithms, (2) dynamic modelling of soil genesis, (3) integration of GIS and statistics, (4) use of new technological innovations, (5) use of high-resolution imagery and (6) global modelling of soil genesis. Especially dynamic modelling of soil genesis, use of high-resolution DEMs and development of global thematic soil maps is expected to be a major field of research in pedometrics for the next decade. Solving these research problems requires a joint effort of both pedometricians and pedologists.
