GeoIndex (onshore)

BGS Map Viewers

Search BGS datasets using GeoIndex, a map-based index of a wealth of information that we have collected or have obtained from other sources.

With GeoIndex, you can:

  • navigate to your area of interest
  • view and query datasets
  • produce PDF reports
  • clip and download data for your area
  • enquire about data you have discovered

Further instructions can be found in the application help menu.

GeoIndex datasets are also available via web map services (WMS).

While we recommend that professional users access the GeoIndex, we also maintain a lightweight Geology of Britain viewer, which is aimed at the general public.
