‘The standard uncertainty layer is the display of location of all input data and section location.’

‘Each model is accompanied by a BGS standard Model Metadata report (example here www.nora.nerc.ac.uk/512705/)’ containing the following categories:

  • Modelled volume, purpose and scale
  • Modelled surfaces/volumes
  • Modelled faults
  • Model datasets
  • Model development log
  • Model workflow
  • Model assumptions, geological rules and concepts
  • Model limitations
  • Model images

Any additional reporting must be costed separately.
