2. Customise your GeoReport
  • If you have chosen a bespoke report — add any additional modules you require
    You can select as many additional modules as you want, but some module combinations can not be selected where the report would contain duplicated data. Check the boxes to add and remove modules.

  • Select the method you would like to use to define the location of your report
    You can locate your report using a British National Grid (BNG) grid reference, by entering an address (see note 1) or by sending us a siteplan (see note 2). Enter your grid reference directly or use our address wizard to find a particular property by postcode.

  • Confirm that the map we show is correct, select the size and shape of your report area,
    and enter any additional information specific to the report

    Each report has a set of allowed shapes and sizes. Should you want a shape or size not shown, please either send us a siteplan or contact us directly to get a quote.
    Some of the modules require additional purpose and yield information to help our scientists tailor the report to your exact needs.

  1. If you ask us to locate your report using an address, we will use the Ordnance Survey's AddressPoint database to find the grid reference of your property. You should be aware that a small percentage of grid reference locations within this database have some uncertainty in their position.

  2. If you ask us to locate your report using an siteplan, you must use our order form and attach it to your order. Online payment is not available as we don't know the location or size required until we receive the siteplan. We will contact you to arrange payment once your siteplan and order form arrive.

    Please Note. If your report is required for a third party then they would need to pay by credit or debit card. We can invoice if required, however, the company wanting to be invoiced would have to order the report directly themselves.
