Groundsure Insight

The three key Enviro, Geo and Map Insight reports, combining unique environmental and geological datasets with the highest resolution historic mapping available.​

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 standard.

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.

What does it cover?

  • Historical Land Use information
  • Environmental Permits, Incidents and Registers
  • Hydrology and Hydrogeology data including abstractions, source protection zones (SPZ), now with SPZ within confined aquifers
  • Basic flood data including EA Flood Zones, RoFRaS and groundwater
  • Detailed flood mapping – Previously only available in the Flood Insight product

Groundsure Insight: GIS Products

The three key Enviro, Geo and Map Insight reports, combining unique environmental and geological datasets with the highest resolution historic mapping available.​ Now available as raw data for GIS.

Product Details

Groundsure's unique reports for desktop environmental assessment - the Enviro Insight and Geo Insight - have been updated to provide a new level of environmental data access. These updated reports, alongside the Map Insight, our best-in-class historical Ordnance Survey map product, make up the Groundsure Insight; the new environmental data standard.

This unrivalled data content is now available as raw data for GIS.

Get your historical maps and environmental data straight into a GIS giving you complete control of the analysis. You decide how to investigate and interrogate the data, rather than relying on the ‘flat’ maps delivered within standard environmental reports.

Bespoke spatial analysis of this kind can unlock hidden relationships and detail and create workflow efficiencies for your business.

Data formatted for GIS is especially effective for large sites, where a PDF report is sometimes not an appropriate or feasible option.

These data products are exclusive to Groundsure and have been developed with the help of customers to provide a clear and concise way to organise and analyse environmental data in your GIS software.

The file is provided as a geodatabase compatible with ESRI’s ArcGIS software.

Key features:

  • Unique and unrivalled data content
  • Uses your existing ESRI and ArcGIS software
  • Detailed metadata of content
  • Follows the same section format of the PDF reports
  • Universal styles across PDF reports and GIS data for seamless switching
