One crucial component of the SoilFit projects' approach to soil as a forensic tool, is the development of a set of reference soils and databases. The databases will enable the estimation of the probability of obtaining accurate soil matches. Creating such a reference database offers great potential in effectively and efficiently applying soil forensic methods.

Combining formal statistical analysis with highly specific, polyphasic soil fingerprinting methods will make soil analysis a more effective tool for routine forensic work, thus considerably extending its applicability.
