DiGMapGB-Plus provides a wide range of value-added geological data and information based on the digital geological map — DiGMapGB-50.
The primary goal for the project is to provide key characteristics of the geology of Great Britain, such as texture, structure, colour, mineralogy and engineering parameters in a way that is suitable for rapid deployment by non-geologists.
Data will be provided as a series of attributes that will be available to licence individually or as a personally selected a range of ‘modules’ to meet your own requirements. The data is normally supplied as a single GIS layer of ‘surface-geology’ compiled from the combined bedrock and superficial layers of DiGMapGB-50.
A national scale model aimed at ‘environmental users’ will also promote the study and coupling of atmosphere–pedosphere–geosphere interaction models thereby leading to a better understanding of the long-term impact of climate change on the environments found across Great Britain.
The DiGMapGB-Plus dataset uses, and concisely presents data spatially, from five key areas of BGS activity: geological surveying, engineering geology, geochemistry, hydrogeology and soil science. It draws on an established BGS history of digital terrain analysis and 2D/3D map processing.
