About Beneath Your Feet

Beneath Your Feet is a service to make it easier to access the high-resolution geological maps published by the British Geological Survey (BGS). The 1:63,360/1:50,000 map series covers almost the entire UK and scans of the most recently published publically available geological maps have been made available for free by the BGS under the Open Government License. These maps include structural data, cross sections and detailed stratigraphic columns for each map.

This service provides an easy means of accessing maps for a particular location without needing to know the map number or title through location-based search or interactive map.
