BGS 'GeoBritain' Map

BGS 'GeoBritain' Map

The GeoBritain map is the latest interactive offering from the British Geological Survey (BGS), following on from educational tools such as 'Make-a-Map', 'Geology of Britain viewer' and 'Holiday Geology Guides'.

The GeoBritain map acts as an inventory of "fascinating geology providing 'secret' walks through breathtaking scenery, literary inspiration, idyllic holiday destinations and the building materials for historic monuments" that can be found in the British Isles. It also contains details of local geology groups, museums and discovery centres.

Our area is currently looking a little under-represented, so why not put the South West on the map and email some of your suggested additions to the BGS?
