Creating river cross profiles with Digimap for Schools

Perse Upper School geography department posted a great video on YouTube this week demonstrating how to use Digimap for Schools to create river cross section profiles.   A fun traditional mapping exercise, the advantage of using Digimap for Schools is that you can easily follow the length of a river to profile the different sections, and profile any river in the country due to having GB wide maps.

Using Digimap for Schools and Excel makes it much quicker and easier than the old way of using a paper map, pencil, ruler and graph paper!
