What is in GeoRisk
MSUK Mining Features: Unique and authoritative data on past mining features and associated infrastructure derived from mine plans and other sources, collated and curated by MSUK across 40 years of consulting.
Mining Records: Rich data indicating the presence or likelihood of past mining activity from a variety of authoritative sources.
Historical features: Past mining activity as depicted on historical maps. Mining features from Groundsure’s unique and comprehensive Historical Land Use Database derived from analysis of 1.5 million high resolution scans of historical OS maps.
Geological features: Geological data from the British Geological Survey (BGS) that could indicate the presence of past mining activity. This data is provided at the highest resolution available (1:10,000 scale).
Oil and gas extraction: Data on the presence or potential presence of oil and gas extraction. Information on exploration areas (‘licensed’ and ‘offered’), alongside existing wells and, unique to Groundsure, potential wells identified in the planning system - giving advanced warning of future development.
Satellite monitoring: Satellite radar data analysed to measure real-world ground movement, accurate to the millimetre. Produced by ground movement experts SatSense and updated every six days on a continuous cycle. Risk to property is summarised into a simple traffic light system across six risk indices, relating to different spatial scales and types of movement.
Natural instability: Comprehensive natural instability data including brand new BGS data on the risk from shrink-swell subsidence. It looks at geology, the presence of trees (Bluesky’s National Tree Map), and local building attributes to deliver a clear hazard score. Full GeoSure data is also included, natural cavities data and the BGS National Landslides Index.
Infilled land: Areas of infilled land can often indicate ground instability. Data is provided on current and historical landfills, along with unique and proprietary data derived from historical mapping and local authority records.
Sinkholes: A comprehensive alert to the likely presence of sinkholes. Includes recent sinkhole incidents in media reports, incidents recorded by the BGS and PBA, and past incidents from Groundsure’s Historical Land Use Database.
Coastal erosion: Understand risks to property from loss of land to the sea. Projections on imminent risk are provided alongside potential risk to your clients’ long term property investment
Coal mining alert: Alerts to a need for a full coal mining risk assessment if the property is within the Coal Mining Reporting Area.
