Founded in 1835, the British Geological Survey (BGS) is the world's oldest national geological survey and the United Kingdom's premier centre for earth science information and expertise. The BGS provides expert services and impartial advice in all areas of geosciences and has a client base that is drawn from the public and private sectors both in the UK and internationally. Our innovative digital data products aim to help describe the ground surface and subsurface across the whole of Great Britain. These digital products are based on the outputs of the BGS survey and research programmes and our substantial national data holdings. This data coupled with our in-house geoscientific knowledge are combined to provide products relevant to a wide range of users in central and local government, insurance and housing, engineering and environmental business, and the British public.
