Geological Map GIS Data

The Geological Map of the Maltese Islands was resurveyed at a scale of 1:10,000 by the British Geological Survey in 2021-2022 through a contract awarded by the Continental Shelf Department. The Department published the map in 2022.

The geological map at a scale of 1:10,000 is available for download in pdf and shapefile format. In the 1:10,000 map the entire geological information is organised under 7 themes/layers: bedrock geology, superficial geology, artificial geology, fault features, fold features, solution subsidence features and bedding measurements. Each layer is available for download through the link that will be provided when the form below is completed and submitted. An Inspire Compliant version of the 1:10,000 map is also available for download.

The link will also allow the download of the 1993 geological map of the Maltese Islands at a scale of 1:25,000. This is also available for download in both pdf and shapefile format. In the 1:25,000 map the entire geological information was organised under 6 themes/layers: quaternary, tertiary, stratigraphical boundaries, bedding, faults and solution subsidence structures.
