Soil of Korea is severely polluted. Republic of Korea ranks 109th country in Land-Area ratio. Yet, small country is undergoing a severe soil pollution. "Korea soil pollution campaign" has utilized infographics to visually analyze the data collected through the Soil Measurement Network provided by the Ministry of Environment of Korea, which surveyed 7 rivers to conclude for 5 major reasons for pollution, 13 fields of soil usage that contributes to pollution, and 12 chemical pollutant. Instead of applying grey-toned color to depict the severity of soil pollution, brighter color, which is opposite to that of soil, is used to draw contrasts and sharp alert to highlight the gravity of pollution. The infographic package consists of 2 parts: a booklet and an infographic poster. The booklet examines the soil pollution in Korea and analyzes regional soil pollution for 7 Provinces of Korea through graphs. The infographic poster visually summarizes the soil pollution in Korea.
