The development of the recent European and global initiatives resulted in an increasing demand for harmonized digital soil information. One of the major limitations of harmonization is the great variation of field and analytical methods and classification systems. Since 1998, the World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB) is the global correlation scheme for soil classification and international communication. The one to one correlation of units, however, is difficult, if not impossible. Another problem is that the correct correlation of national units to WRB units might have spatial consequences. If the original map units need to be maintained, it is important to express the extent to which certain national units match with the WRB units. Taxonomic distance measurements were applied successfully to express numerically the correlation between the brown forest soil types (BFS) of the Hungarian Soil Classification System (HSCS) and WRB Reference Soil Groups (RSGs).
