Digimap is a collection of services provided through EDINA, that allows registered users to view and create maps of any location in Great Britain using map data. Worldwide data is provided by the Global collection. Users can also download map data for use in other software packages, such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), drawing software and CAD.
Registration is required to use the Digimap collections and you need to agree to the end user licence. Although registration is verified immediately via email it is recommended that registration is completed prior to any practical teaching session. Once registered you will be able to use your University login.
