The BGS GeoSure 5 km hex grid datasets provide a generalised overview of the susceptibility to six naturally occurring geohazards in Great Britain. The hexagon grid provides a national-scale summary of the GeoSure data product. The detailed GeoSure dataset is also available to licence and provides further detail at a scale of 1:50 000.

The 5 km hex grid data has been generalised into a vector map of interlocking hexagon cells (a side length of 5 km), with an area approximately 65 km2. There are three classes included within the data: low, moderate and significant.

The six layers of data provided are as follows:

  • landslides (slope stability)
  • shrink–swell potential
  • soluble rocks (dissolution)
  • compressible ground
  • collapsible deposits
  • running sand
