BGS offshore marine products are made available to view via this web map service. The 1:250 000 scale offshore geological maps in the UTM series (Universal Transverse Mercator projection) are available digitally as two themes: bedrock geology (DiGHardSubstrate250k) and sea-bed sediments (DigSBS250). Your use of any information provided by the BGS is at your own risk. BGS gives no warranty, condition or representation as to the quality, accuracy or completeness of the information or its suitability for any use or purpose. All implied conditions relating to the quality or suitability of the information, and all liabilities arising from the supply of the information (including any liability arising in negligence) are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Offshore 1:250 000 scale marine bedrock polygons (BGS250k.Bedrock)

DiGRock250k is a digital geological map showing the distribution of bedrock types in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) area, representing the natural continuation of the onshore bedrock geology into the offshore. The bedrock divisions on the map represent the principal lithostratigraphical units (e.g. formations and groups) in the UK, ranging in age from Proterozoic to Cainozoic in age, as defined in the BGS Lexicon of Named Rock Units. This dataset can be used in conjunction with other BGS offshore datasets that include DiGSBS250k (Sea-Bed Sediments) and the DiGBath250k (Bathymetry) datasets. The bedrock geology below the sea-bed is of importance to a range of groups, including marine habitat mappers, marine spatial planners, the offshore construction and development sector, and the dredging and aggregate industries.

Offshore 1:250 000 scale marine bedrock linear features (BGS250k.LinearBedrock)

DiGRock250k is a digital geological map showing the distribution of bedrock types in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) area, representing the natural continuation of the onshore bedrock geology into the offshore. The bedrock divisions on the map represent the principal lithostratigraphical units (e.g. formations and groups) in the UK, ranging in age from Proterozoic to Cainozoic in age, as defined in the BGS Lexicon of Named Rock Units. This dataset can be used in conjunction with other BGS offshore datasets that include DiGSBS250k (Sea-Bed Sediments) and the DiGBath250k (Bathymetry) datasets. The bedrock geology below the sea-bed is of importance to a range of groups, including marine habitat mappers, marine spatial planners, the offshore construction and development sector, and the dredging and aggregate industries.

Offshore 1:250 000 scale sea bed sediment (BGS250k.SBS)

1:250 000 scale offshore geological map in the UTM series (Universal Transverse Mercator projection) - Offshore sea-bed sediments (DigSBS250).

Offshore 1:250 000 scale hard substrate (BGS250k.HardSubstrate)

1:250 000 scale offshore geological map in the UTM series (Universal Transverse Mercator projection) - Offshore Bedrock geology (DiGHardSubstrate250k). The Marine Hard Substrate dataset maps areas of rock or hard substrate outcropping or within 0.5m of the sea-bed.
