Abstract/Summary

Insufficient understanding of subsurface ground conditions places significant constraints on effective and sustainable development of urban areas, and is a key factor in overspend on construction projects. Recent collaboration between the British Geological Survey (BGS), Glasgow City Council (GCC) and the private sector (Grontmij Ltd) has demonstrated the potential for creating the conditions necessary for a major change in how subsurface data in urban areas are reported and exchanged between the public and private sectors. This is directly in line with the principles outlined by the EU INSPIRE Directive so that data can be re-used more effectively and have widespread benefit.
