4 BICENTENNIAL GEOLOGICAL MAP OF BRITAIN 1815-2015 [Flat Map]

This map commemorates the two-hundredth anniversary of the publication of the first geological map of Britain, by William Smith (1769-1839). It depicts modern geological bedrock data in the style of Smith’s early nineteenth century cartography. The main focus of Smith's work was to apply his observations and ideas to the everyday needs of the canal builders, quarry- and mine-owners, landowners and agriculturists who were underpinning the Industrial Revolution. As more attributes are added by the British Geological Survey to geological map data, William Smith's conviction that geological mapping is of vital importance at many levels and in many areas of the nation's society, science, and industry is as true today as it was two centuries ago, when he conceived his original geological map. The methods involved in map production have developed and, especially with digital data, the method of map delivery has altered radically, but the fundamental importance of providing accurate geological map data to today's industries is as vital now as it was in Smith's time.

8 Climate through time: our rocks reveal the story of change [Folded Map]

This poster map shows the rocks of Britain and Ireland in a new way – grouped and coloured according to the environment under which they were formed. Photographs illustrate modern-day environments, alongside images of the typical rock types which are formed in them. The ages of the rocks are shown in a timeline, which also shows global temperatures and sea levels changing through time. The changing positions of Britain and Ireland as they drifted northwards through geological time are illustrated too. [Folded Map]
