If you know what data you want you can get a quote and apply for a licence online.
Alternatively, you can apply for a BGS digital data licence by downloading the data licence form in Word format . Please email the completed form to our licensing team.
The key areas addressed by the form are:
- Which geographical area(s) of which BGS dataset(s) are required, and in which format do you want to receive them (e.g. ESRI, or MapInfo)?
- What will you be using the data for?
- How long do you want the licence to run? (Please note that our minimum standard licence term is 12 months.)
- Will any third parties need to have access to the BGS data — e.g. contractors (we have a 'complementary licence' system to cater for use of data by a licensee's contractors).
If you have any queries about the application form, please contact our licensing team.
