This report is published by the British Geological Survey Urban Geoscience Team as part of a series of reports to assess current opportunities and challenges in providing geological data, information, and knowledge to inform urban planning policy and sustainable development. The reports focus on the value of geological data, and the knowledge and understanding applied to these data in urban areas for geohazards, construction and harnessing subsurface resource. Alongside, the reports describe the role of technology in characterising and visualising the shallow subsurface (the top 100 m below ground level), and how this has evolved in response to stakeholder needs. They also provide recommendations for how BGS data and science should develop to respond to future demands of urban geoscience stakeholders including academia, industry, policy makers, urban planners and the general public. The reports in this series are as follows:  Urban Geoscience Report - The value of geoscience data, information and knowledge for transport and linear infrastructure projects OR/21/065 (Bricker et al., 2022)  Urban Geoscience Report - Capacity for 3D urban modelling OR/22/043 (Kearsey et al., 2022)  Urban Geoscience Report - Application of geotechnical and engineering geological data and information OR/22/049 Further details of how BGS data and information are specifically used by stakeholders, and of the value, in general, of geoscience data and information to the construction sector, are presented in Bricker et al., (2022). Further details of 3D modelling, and in particular of 3D geological models in urban areas is also presented in Kearsey et al., (2022).
