Summary
Abstract: This simple Geology of Britain viewer helps you explore the geology around where you live. Pan and zoom to where you live, click on an area of interest and reveal the rocks beneath your feet. The geology map is available at two scales 1:625 000 scale (small scale) and 1:50 000 scale (medium scale). As you move the vertical slider upwards the map detail changes from small scale to medium scale data as you zoom further into an area of interest. Move the horizontal transparency slider to the right to increase the colors of the geological map. You can also show a satellite photographs by clicking on the Imagery button.
