Here are various advice pages that have been written by the Sedgwick Club over the years.

Mapping guidance

Sedgwick Club members have been recording feedback on their mapping areas for the last few years, to aid other members pick a mapping area for their Part II project.

The Club and the Department always appreciates more feedback regarding mapping locations. If you would like to provide feedback, follow the link below.

An interactive map is provided below with previously mapped locations, which can also be found on the library website with a collection of archived projects. Feedback is available where provided.

If you would like guidance with selecting a location for a mapping project, we would advise speaking to Part IIs and IIIs in the Department (or get in touch with the committee) or with Sarah at the Earth Sciences Library.

A form for providing mapping feedback and an index of collected feedback is available here. Feedback for an area can be found here if it is not available on the map.

A Raven login is required to view and submit feedback.
