The latest Digimap addition is aerial photo images, covering the whole of Great Britain to 25cm precision. The University of Edinburgh has just subscribed to Aerial Digimap, so the great news is that staff and students can now access these wonderful images, overlay them onto other map layers, and combine them with building height and topology data to make amazing and beautiful three-dimensional maps of the whole of Britain.
Digimap is a visual interface that allows users to explore, annotate and download mapping data covering the whole of Great Britain.* Digimap’s historical map data go back as far as the 1840s, while geological, marine and environmental data have been available for some time.
It’s strikingly sunny in the images of Edinburgh. The Digimap team confirmed this is a UK-wide phenomenon: “Aerial Photography can only be captured on clear days, so it’s always sunny in Aerial Roam!”
You can watch a guided tour of Aerial Digimap’s features and a demonstration of how to make the most of them byÂ EDINA’s Ian Holmes in this recently recorded webinar:Â
TheÂ tables below list the datasets that were updated in December 2016 and at the very start of January 2017. The most significant change is the addition of OS Open Map – Local to Roam, which was covered in an earlier blog post. The other updates bring the data available up to date with the most […]
OS Open Map – Local (OML) was recently added to the Digimap Roam application, giving users the ability to create maps online with a detailed, vector open dataset. OML is the most detailed vector mapping product available from Ordnance Survey as Open Data. We have added this dataset to the following map views in Digimap […]
As well as releasing the new OS MasterMap Water Network Layer earlier this month, we have also updated a number of datasets available in the Ordnance Survey collection. Most notably this month we have updated OS Open Map – Local, the most detailed OpenData product available from Ordnance Survey. OS Open Map – Local was […]
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new datasets to the Digimap Ordnance Survey Collection, which are available to download through the Data Download application. Both these datasets are detailed network datasets andÂ form part of the OS MasterMap family of products. The datasets should prove useful for individuals carrying out detailed network analysis […]
EDINA is pleased to announce the launch of Aerial Digimap, a new Collection offering aerial photography from Getmapping Plc. The crystal clear imagery from Getmapping is 25cm resolution vertical aerial photography and the most detailed national coverage available. The largest proportionÂ of the imagery dates from post-2011 with updates due every year. Aerial Digimap offers both […]
EDINA’s annual Geoforum conference for all its geospatial services and projects was held at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Geography this year. It was attended by nearly 50 delegates who came to find out what we have been up to over the past year and to see what we new things they can expect […]
The new look home page we told you about in the last blog post, has now been launched.
Along with the fresh new look for the start of the new academic year we have also updated the registration and licence agreement pages. The structure of the pages and access to the applications has not been changed, so you should have no problem navigating around the page.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need any more information:
We have been hard at work developing a fresh new look for Digimap which we will be launching for the new academic year. Here is a sneak preview, though please note that nothing has been finalised just yet:
The operation of the page remains the same and the layout is almost identical, we have just given it a modern fresh look. We hope you like it!
If you have any questions or require any more information then please feel free to contact us:
A number of datasets in the Ordnance Survey Collection have been updated in May this year. We’ve also made a number of improvements to some of the datasets that are popular for 3D modelling which will hopefully make it easier to use these datasets in CAD applications. The main changes are:
OS MasterMap Sites Layer now available in DWG and ESRI Shapefile format (previously it was onlyÂ available in GML)
OS Terrain 5 DTM is now available in XYZ format for use in CAD applications
OS Terrain 5 Contours in DWG format are now provided as as 3D contours with the heightÂ of each feature set to the correct contour height
The data format help page has been updated to reflect these changes and is a good place to go if you are interested to see which datasets are available in a specific format.
