The BGS has a wide range of datasets and wants to increase access to these by publishing as many as possible under OpenGeoscience. OpenGeoscience is a free service where you can view maps and download data, scans, photos and other information. The services available under OpenGeoscience include:
- the BGS Geology Viewer
- access to over a million borehole scans
- the GeoScenic geological photographic archive, where you can search for and download photos
- published paper maps and sections from 1832 to 2014 and printed publications from 1835 to the present
