BGS EarthServer - Geology Lighthouse Service

This is the Geology Lighthouse Service of the the EU FP7 EarthServer project. It is run by the British Geological Survey (BGS) (part of the Natural Environment Research Council NERC). The EarthServer project is developing capabilities for access to, and ad-hoc processing of, large Earth science data sets using Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard web service interfaces for coverage data. To find out more about on the involvement of the British Geological Survey see the "BGS and EarthServer Background" page.
