Are you undertaking a preliminary Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) risk assessment?
Download an Unexploded Bomb (UXB) risk map for your site.
It’s easy and FREE!
Enter a place name, postcode or browse the map and place the marker on a location.
Then press download to get a link to your map. An email will be sent to your inbox with your site-specific map attached. If your site is located close to the Greater London boundary, you will receive two maps.
The email will also provide details of our free pre-desk study assessment service that can be undertaken if you suspect that your site has a UXO hazard from other past military activity.
The maps provide a high level assessment of regional WWII bombing densities and will help in your decision on whether further more detailed research by a UXO specialist is required.
The map indicates the potential for UXB to be present as a result of World War Two (WWII) bombing. You can incorporate the map into your preliminary risk assessment for potential UXO for a site.
Zetica has built the largest UXB database of its kind in the UK. It includes a unique digital library of bomb census data, and maps showing key strategic points and bombing densities from the Second World War. The main sources of information include records from the central government (National Archives), local authority archives, the Ministry of Defence, and the German Luftwaffe.
The risk boundaries are a guide, compiled from data based on the political areas for which records are held.
Never plan site work or undertake a risk assessment using these maps alone. More detail is required, particularly where there may be a source of UXO from other military operations which are not reflected on these maps.
