GeoSure Basic

Dataset description

The GeoSure data sets and reports from the British Geological Survey provide information about potential ground movement or subsidence in a helpful and user-friendly format. The reports can help inform planning decisions and indicate causes of subsidence. Complete Great Britain national coverage is available. GeoSure Basic is a single, combined GeoSure model, containing only the highest score of all the GeoSure layers. The model has been re-classified to negligible - very low, low and moderate - high. The methodology is based on the 6 GeoSure individual hazard Assessments. The storage formats of the data are ESRI and MapInfo but other formats can be supplied.

Constraints

This information has commercial potential and access should be subject to the Programme Manager's approval (M Harrison). The information should not be used to indicate actual hazard at a site. It does not assess if the hazard is actually present. This can only be determined by a site specific assessment.
