British Geological Survey apps mySoil and iGeology will be retired on 1 August 2022, the UKSO map viewer combines the data found in these apps and includes much more data for you to easily access.
The apps on this page offer additional, useful ways to access soil information for Great Britain. Several apps allow mobile access to data, the opportunity to crowdsource your own observations, or just learn more about your environment. We will be expanding this section as new apps become available. If you are aware of other handy apps, tools, or software that you think would be useful for us to share on this site, please contact us.
