This report provides some guidance on the nature and use of digital environmental data in G1S for improved land quality data, management. Geographical information systems (GIS) are being used increasingly in local authorities (LAs), the Environment Agency (the Agency), consultancies and industry. This project, jointly funded by the Agency and the British Geological Survey (BGS), has provided a Technical Guidance Report to encourage and guide the application of digital environmental data in GIS for users addressing land quality issues. The Report is broadly usable for a variety of land quality issues including unstable ground, conservation, contaminated land and sustainable development.
