The South Downs 3D model represents a conceptual understanding of the bedrock geology of the South Downs National Park in southern England. The model covers an area of approximately 3100 km2 from Winchester to Beachy Head (Figure 1). This model consists of ten geological units that correspond with the current 1:250 000 scale geological map of the region. The model is intended for use as a teaching aid for educational purposes. It provides an overview of the regional bedrock geology and is not suitable for use at site-specific level.
