BGS Scanned Maps (1:250k)

This layer includes the BGS 1:250k published maps. Maps in this series show three sorts of geological information; solid ‘bedrock’ geology, (S), Quaternary or ‘drift’ geology (Q), or sea-bed sediments (Ss). These are usually presented as separate sheets, although sea-bed sediments and Quaternary geology, or sea-bed sediments and solid geology may be shown on the same sheet. Quaternary geology maps are for offshore areas only. Sheets were published between 1977 and 2000 with a few special area sheets up to 2009. Sheets were issued on a regular grid based on the UTM of two degrees longitude by one degree latitude. Note the publication dates (latest mapping is available through the BGS digital maps).
