We cannot answer yet to these (good) questions because we do not have enough experience of real uses of our DSM products. We must not limit our effort to only delivering these products. We should be involved in projects with real users of soil data, as diverse as possible. Anyway, a prerequisite to this challenge is to produce accurate and communicable measures of uncertainty of the DSM products (see Challenge 2) so that all the information, i.e. the legend and the purity in the example of a soil map, is on the table.
