The British Geological Survey (BGS) is the national geoscience centre, and is the UK's premier provider of geoscientific data, information and knowledge for wealth creation, sustainable use of natural resources, reducing risk and living with the impacts of environmental change. Alongside the full range of geohazard information, the BGS maintains the National Landslide Database and the Earth & Planetary Observation and Monitoring Team is constantly assessing and developing new technologies for geohazard mapping. Building upon successful achievements of recent applications of InSAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry) and PSI (Persistent Scatterer Interferometry) in other EU countries such as Italy, Switzerland and The Netherlands, this study aims to map the topographic and land use feasibility of these technologies to monitor ground motions over the entire landmass of Great Britain.
