Product Details

Groundsure Insight delivers detailed and accurate information using extensive and unique environmental and geological datasets as well as providing you with the highest resolution historic mapping available.

Groundsure’s Historic Land Use Database (HLUD) is the most accurate and reliable information available on the market. Our HLUD is derived from historic Ordnance Survey mapping dating back to the 1840s, scanned in at over 500dpi – setting a new industry.

This sharper imagery means you can see the information more clearly and benefit from greater confidence in your opinion. Each map is manually assessed by an in-house GIS consultant before we deliver it. The Full pack includes National Grid, County Series and Town Plans at scales: 1:10,000, 1:10,560, 1:2,500, 1:1,250, 1:1056 and 1:500.

The Geo Insight report provides all the geo-environmental data required to make informed decisions and identify potential ground stability problems that may affect ground investigation, foundation design or possible remediation options.
