3D Geological model for Great Britain


This month sees the release of a 3D geological map of Great Britain, put together by the BGS. This new map- shown as a network of cross-sections through the Earth's crust, is a new way of visualising national scale geology.

This will benefit those seeking to understand the geological map and its relationship to the landscape and resources; such as oil, minerals, coal and gas. 

The 3D map can be downloaded and explored here.
