An applied geological study of the City of Bradford Metropolitan District, UK, was the last of a series of British Government-funded projects to provide background applied geological information for land-use planning and development. This study included a range of engineering geological maps. As well as providing a general engineering geological overview, the maps show foundation conditions, suitability of deposits as engineered fill, excavatability, the thickness of superficial deposits and landslide distribution and slope steepness. The paper briefly describes the content of the maps and how they were produced.
