Bicentennial Geological Map 1815-2015

Bicentennial Geological Map 1815-2015

This map commemorates the two-hundredth anniversary of the publication of the first geological map of Britain by William Smith (1769-1839). It depicts modern geological bedrock data in the style of Smith’s early nineteenth century cartography.

The base map has satellite-derived relief plus the road network, while the maps full official title and the dedications follow the charming style of early 19th century publications. A small panel shows the original 1815 map with explanatory notes.
