10k Sheet NS66SW (Rutherglen) in eastern Glasgow is the first 3D model of the superficial geology of Scotland to be created in GSI3D. Following a successful pilot study and the concurrent rapid development of the GSI3D software, a final model was produced in August 2004. This report is a summary of the development of the NS66SW superficial model in terms of the software evolution, methodology and the geological interpretation. The geological interpretation has been based on the lithostratigraphy and ideas presented by Browne and MacMillan (1989). The limitations of the methodology and the uncertainties in the model are discussed, as are interesting geological problems uncovered by the modelling. The data files used in the modelling are described in the appendices. Ten Best Practice documents have been compiled and are available in the project folder and will shortly be on the DGSM Best Practice web page.
