- view geology data through the Geology of Britain map window and as WMS
- search and download photos from the GeoScenic geological photo archive
- view our published paper maps and sections from 1832 to 2014 and publications from 1835 to the present
We welcome feedback, good or bad, from customers and stakeholders on the quality of the products and services that we offer — tell us what you think.
The BGS, as part of UKRI, is committed to meeting its obligations under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004, both of which came into operation in January 2005.
