  1. BGS Digital Map Teaching Set for universities

  2. BGS Digital Map Teaching Set A data package comprising: • 12 geological map sheet areas spanning a range of geological complexity and patterns • Scanned image of paper maps as PDFs • ArcMap (GIS) project containing: • DiGMapGB-50 (all layers) • Borehole locations and hotlinks to scanned records • Digital Terrain Models (incl. NextMap) • Aerial photography

  3. BGS Digital Map Teaching Set • E31 Brough under Stainmore Interaction of horizontal strata with topography; strike-slip and extensional fault systems; overstep unconformities; sills • Isle of Wight special sheet Interaction of inclined beds with topography; onlap boundaries; simple monoformal folding • E119 Snowdon Open folding; extrusive igneous rocks • Bristol District special sheet Unconformities, folding, thrusts

  4. BGS Digital Map Teaching Set • E227/245/228  Milford/Haverfordwest/ Pembroke Folding; thrusting; fault reactivation. Very common fieldwork location • S28 Knapdale Ductile deformation; polyphase folding. Common fieldwork location • S15W/E  Leadhills/New Cumnock (=old Sanquhar sheet) Terrane boundaries; thrusting; building up multi-event geological histories • Arran special sheet Multi-event histories; diverse geological relationships. Common fieldwork location

  5. BGS Digital Map Teaching Set • Assynt special sheet Buried landscape unconformities; thrust systems. Common fieldwork location • S44  Eastern Mull Igneous complexes • S71  Broadford Building up multi-event geological histories; igneous complexes. Common fieldwork location • E38  Ambleside Building up multi-event geological histories; collapsed volcanic caldera. Common fieldwork location

  6. End User arrangements • End users to sign Undertaking Agreement with BGS-NERC • End users to sign Academic User License Agreement with Intermap Technologies (DTMs) • BGS to notify InfoTerra (Aerial photography) regarding each end user • BGS Business Solutions section will provide DVD and support

  7. Future developments • 3-D geological models to accompany teaching set • Extranet delivery for borehole or map scans • Delivery of data via Web Map Services e.g. GIS maps, vocabulary data services (1:625k geology map already available for Google Earth mashups) • Further teaching resources, e.g. seismometers (extending the School Seismology Project)
