This report is produced as part of a study (Shaw, 2006), to define the scope of, and assess the priorities for, the PropBase project. The PropBase project is intended to provide information on physical, mechanical, chemical and mineralogical properties of the UK’s rocks and soils, and their interrelationships to enable attribution of the 3D geological model and modelling of the properties themselves, and to obtain a better understanding of how these properties change as a result of geological processes. This reports describes a review, undertaken between March and July 2006, of BGS datasets held and maintained specifically within Murchison House, that may be of potential relevance to PropBase. The report also considers issues related to the potential integration of these datasets, future capture of data, particularly in accepted industry-wide electronic data recording and transfer formats (e.g. AGS and related formats), and the release of the data through PropBase to potential end-users, both internally and externally.
