    The geological mapping carried out by William Smith, which resulted in the
    publication of his famous map in 1815, was remarkable in many respects, not
    least because it relied on him being able to make consistent and accurate
    observations on the rock types he encountered during his fieldwork. This ability,
    gained from his many years studying rocks, allowed him to observe features with
    his own eyes (or at the very least, with the aid of a simple magnifying device) that
    others could not. We take a new look at William Smith’s original stratigraphical
    sequences, and with samples collected from his classic field areas (many of which
    are around the city of Bath, Somerset, UK), demonstrate how spatial mineralogy
    mapping can be incorporated into the modern age of digital mapping.
