The first official geological photographs were taken in 1891 in the north-west of Scotland, later in 1902 the first English Survey geological photograph was taken. In 1910 two printed catalogues were published listing the photographs that had been taken up to that date for England and Wales, and Scotland. In 1928 the Survey published 'Classified lists of geological photographs' which highlighted the best photographs for a wide range of geological subjects listed in a hierarchical classification. Other editions were published in 1952 and 1963 with more up to date selections of images. No further published catalogues of photographs were produced after this date.
