​Ordnance Survey adds 100 Geosites to online mapping tool

Beachy Head

The Geological Society’s 100 Great Geosites have been added to the Ordnance Survey online mapping tool. 

In 2014 the Geological Society asked the public to identify 100 Great Geosites in the UK and Ireland. Over 400 nominations were received and 100 were chosen, with the help of experts and a public vote.

The society said: ”We’re delighted that the Ordnance Survey has now included the 100 Great Geosites on its online mapping and route-planning tool. The tool can be used to plan walks and excursions around Great Britain.

”You can create and discover local walking, running and cycling routes and build personal route maps that take in the 100 Great Geosites.”

The mapping tool can be accessed here and viewers just need to add the geosite locations to their map view by selecting ‘Places’ and then ‘Geosites’ in the side menu under ‘Natural Attractions’.
