BGS Geology of Britain: Geovisualization 100%


Oh! a must see: BGS Geology of Britain. Source from

Britain is fortunate in possessing a remarkably varied geology within a relatively small area.

The rocks that make up our islands represent a long and complicated history of events. They encompass most of the major periods of geological time and extremes of climate from desert to glacier.

Our rocky heritage was the source of many raw materials vital to the Industrial Revolution and therefore to the nation’s wealth and political power.

It is therefore not surprising, given this combination of natural treasures and the enquiring spirit of the times that, as modern sciences flourished, many important early pioneers were British Geoscientists.

Follow the links in the left hand menu to find out more about the geology of Britain using our Geology of Britain viewerGeoUK and Ireland map or Holiday geology guides.

Joining Coursera: Imagery, Automation, and Applications


It’s not the first time that i do one of these only courses but i can tell, i have learnt a lot with this one. I strongly recommend it for those wanting to learn a bit more than the basics about remote sensing or GIS analysis. A comprehensive combination of ArcGIS tools and standard GIS knowledge is in very clear English, perfectly subtitled if needed and very easy to follow.

A must if you want/need to keep yourself updated!
