The BGS GeoScour Open datasets provide a generalised overview of the natural characteristics and properties of catchment and riverine environments for the assessment of river scour in Great Britain.
The GeoScour Open dataset comprises two different tiers of geographical information system data containing seven different data layers. Each tier represents a different scale of assessment, from a high-level catchment to subcatchment data. The datasets are polygon (area) layers, which are described using straightforward classifications and enabling an indicative catchment susceptibility assessment.
