A consultation for 2013–33 (and beyond) is on-going, closing date 31 May 2013. Everyone is invited to participate. It's our Earth.
Scans of all BGS one-inch hand-coloured maps issued between 1835 and 1905 have now been released on OpenGeoscience for viewing. They include the very first maps compiled by the founder of the Survey, Sir Henry De la Beche, and cover all maps issued before colour printing was introduced.
