Features and benefits

This product includes the most recent interpretation of the geology of Great Britain as mapped to 1:50,000 scale by the British Geological Survey. This is overlain on 1:50,000 mapping from the Ordnance Survey.

Although the geology of Great Britain remains largely unchanged over the geologically insignificant timescale of the human lifetime, there are constant updates to the mapping as the understanding of the often hidden 'surface' geology is improved by growing knowledge, technological advances in investigation and new exposure through excavation and natural ground movement.
