The British Geological Survey (BGS/UKRI) is the UK's principal supplier of objective, impartial and up-to-date geological expertise and information to enable decision-making for the public and private sectors, both in the UK and internationally. At this event, the BGS will be presenting some of its expertise in the area, including the latest digital developments: the Dig-to-Share Project and the Digital Brownfield Ground Risk Calculator.

The Dig-to-Share Project is a joint project between Atkins, Morgan Sindall and BGS, funded by i3P, which aims is to encourage the deposit of geotechnical data with the BGS’ National Repository. The Brownfield Ground Risk Calculator is a digital planning tool presented in a geographical information system (GIS), which has been developed to help identify the scale of risks and unexpected costs (abnormals) associated with ground conditions.
