This paper uses recent studies to demonstrate how modern developments, including remote sensing, 3-D modelling and responsive surveys, have enabled scientists to better understand urban geological environments and geohazards and communicate them to the public. These developments are discussed here and illustrated with three diverse examples from the UK and SE Asia.
