Geology of Britain Functionality to search for a borehole can be found under the Menu button, when the Boreholes data mode is selected: In this mode, boreholes are displayed on the map. In ‘3D Below ground’ mode boreholes sticks are displayed below the Earth’s surface. Boreholes are coloured according to whether they have depth information as indicated in the key. Click on a borehole of interest to view some basic information about that borehole and to access a link to view a scan of the borehole record. Where boreholes are coloured black, we are unable to provide a direct link to the associated scanned borehole record.

Download 91,000 Historic Maps from the Massive David Rumsey Map Collection Three years ago, we highlighted one of the most comprehensive map collections in existence, the David Rumsey Map Collection, then newly moved to Stanford University. The Rumsey Collection, we wrote then, “contains a seemingly inexhaustible supply of cartographic images”—justifiable hyperbole, considering the amount of time it would take any one person to absorb the over 150,000 physical artifacts Rumsey has amassed in one place. By 2016, Rumsey had made almost half the collection—over 67,000 images—freely available in a digital archive that has been growing since 1996. Each entry features high-resolution scans for specialists (you can download them for free) and more manageable image sizes for enthusiasts; a wealth of data about provenance and historical context; and digital, user-friendly tools that use crowd-sourcing to measure the accuracy of antiquated maps against GPS renderings. To make this document even more compelling, it contains its own bibliography.

These Maps Show You How to Live, Not Just Where Data for GOOD Knowledge is the first step on the way to progress. It used to be that paper maps were the free gifts that came with your new compass, graphically representing geography via points, lines, and fire-breathing dragons—all of which indicated orientation, distance, latitude, longitude, and the sheer vastness of uncharted territory. But today’s multidimensional digital maps are comprehensive, interactive, and they’ve got the compass built right in. Mapping that changes lives – UCL Antenna “It is not just women and men in Latin American cities but dwellers living in informal settlements across African and Asian cities that face similar avoidable and often invisible risk traps that deny their right to the city.” Risk traps Between 2012 and 2017, a new wave of students studying the UCL/DPU MSc in Environment and Sustainable Development spent several weeks in Lima, having prepared themselves in London with in-depth research that builds upon previous year’s results and contributions. The students have a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, such as environmental studies, architecture, sociology and engineering, adding fresh eyes that complement and benefit from the different phases of the research project. Over the years, the team also enlisted Peruvian young professionals as interns, to support the UCL students and to strengthen the local capacity and legacy of the project.

This site is a personal side project. I had planned to take it offline by the end of 2017, but have received several encouraging messages asking if it can be kept online—many thanks.

Today, by the most conservative estimates, about 900 million people live in slums. But most experts agree that including different types of informal settlements, the number goes up to 1.6 billion – which represents 1/4 of the world’s urban population. By 2030, it’s estimated that it 1 in 4 people on the planet will live in a slum or other informal settlement. Let’s take a tour of the world’s biggest slums:

World trade system in danger of being torn apart, warns IMF The postwar global trading system risks being torn apart, the International Monetary Fund has warned, amid concern over the tariff showdown between the US and China. In a sign of its growing concern that protectionism is being stimulated by voter scepticism, the IMF used its half-yearly health check for the world economy to tell policymakers they needed to address the public’s concerns before a better-than-expected period of growth came to an end. Maurice Obstfeld, the IMF’s economic counsellor, said: “The first shots in a potential trade war have now been fired.” He said Donald Trump’s tax cuts would suck imports into the US and increase the size of the trade deficit 2019 by $150bn – a trend that could exacerbate trade tensions. “The multilateral rules-based trade system that evolved after world war two and that nurtured unprecedented growth in the world economy needs strengthening. Instead, it is in danger of being torn apart.”
