Hydrogeological map of the UK and Isle of Man

Dataset description

The map shows the potential for the rocks to supply groundwater and the type of groundwater flow within the rocks. The dataset reattributes polygons in the 625k_v5_bedrock dataset to indicate whether the bedrock is an aquifer, the type of flow through the aquifer (fracture and fissure flow or intergranular flow) and how productive the aquifer is likely to be. The dataset is based on the known hydrogeological properties of rock types. The dataset covers the UK and the Isle of Man. The data can be used for planning, environmental analysis, water supply and hazards.
