Glasgow model
In January 2013, BGS made the central Glasgow model and released it to a network of interested people called the ASK (Accessing Subsurface Knowledge) network. The model gives other agencies, such as engineers and construction companies, a broad idea of the geology underneath Glasgow, which helps them get an idea of what lies under the ground and plan for any problems they may come across. The Glasgow Minecraft model has been based on this.
