Improved colour cartography for Geology Digimap

From 10 June 2008 geological maps available through Geology Digimap will use a new method of displaying different rock types.  

The coloured shading has been improved and made transparent in order to avoid the use of hatching, which previously obscured the underlying topographic map. The new display colours should make it easier to identify different rock types and to see the context mapping beneath the geological information.
