Society website upgraded

Geological Society of Glasgow logo

The society’s website has been upgraded to make it more readable on different sizes of display. The last upgrade took place in 2014. In contrast to the previous website, the new version looks equally good on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. The process of modifying the website to provide this versatility has involved major changes to its layout.

While carrying out the upgrade, we have tried to keep the same interesting and varied content that the original website had, while adding some new features. For instance, the geological map in the Local Rocks section has been redrawn, with interactive features added to it, and there is now an events calendar.

We have also returned to using the society’s original “shield” logo. Because the previous version we had of this was rather blurred and indistinct, the society’s president, Neil Clark, has redrawn the logo to produce a crisp image suitable for the digital age. This can be seen above.

We invite you to explore the new website and hope that you enjoy the journey.
