The map is fully functional and can be zoomed, panned, and changed into a road map with the controls on the map window. Click on the markers to see information about each instance. The Street View pegman can be dragged to roads that include this feature, which can give you panoramic roadside views in some countries.
What the numbers mean: Soil carbon, which makes up half or more of soil organic matter by dry weight, is usually measured as organic matter percentage of a soil sample, or in tons of carbon if the density of the soil and the volume of the sampled layer are also measured. To get a carbon dioxide equivalent, multiply tons of carbon by 3.67.
