The British Geological Survey (BGS) has  released high resolution scans of over 6000 geological maps which were previously published on paper. The “BGS Maps Portal” provides free to view small and medium scale maps produced by the BGS since geological mapping began in 1832. The Maps Portal includes the recent 1:50,000 mapping of England, Wales and Scotland, geochemical and geophysical maps and also the historical maps that were in the former BGS historical maps website.
