Geological Survey of Scotland, One-Inch to the Mile, 1850s-1940s

This set of geological maps use Ordnance Survey one-inch to the mile maps as their topographic base, with a coloured geological overprint. Most of the sheets are combined solid and drift editions, but in some cases, as indicated in the sheet titles, separate solid and drift sheets were published.

This is all our out-of-copyright holdings of these geological maps, which cover most of Scotland by the late 1940s.

See also, the more detailed six-inch to the mile geological maps for areas with more economically valuable geology.

The dates of geological survey work are rarely given on the sheets, and so we have included the dates of Ordnance Survey topographic survey/revision and of Geological Survey publication.
