BGS serves up data-to-go

By Wayne Shelley, Andrew Marchant, Patrick Bell and Keith Westhead

Abstract

The information world is on the move. Rapidly developing web and\ud communication technologies are making geospatial data much more\ud accessible to a new generation of environmentally-aware users.\ud Smartphones, tablet computers, GPS technologies and innovative web\ud services are combining to enable providers of geospatial data, such as the\ud British Geological Survey, to deliver maps and data to users whenever and\ud wherever they need them.\ud The latest development from the BGS is the free ‘iGeology’ app\ud available for the iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones. This app allows\ud users to interrogate a geological map and related databases,\ud to help them understand the environment and\ud landscape around them
