GIS Web Map Services (WMS)
You can now access The Geological Survey's GIS data directly through your desktop GIS application, or use it to create a live 'mash up' web service.

OGC compliant WMS (Web Map Service) feeds are now available via our departmental GIS server.

Consult your software's help documentation on how to add the WMS.
