Maps: Digimap Roam - OS

Using Digimap

Our subscription to Digimap provides online access to the most up-to-date maps from Ordnance Survey. The videos on this page will help you get started.

Create your own maps
Digimap allows you to annotate maps, and also provides raw data download facilities for use in CAD, GIS or other systems to create visual representations of your research or illustrate plans. There is a wealth of information and guidance on the use of Digimap with other software on the EDINA Digimap Resource Centre (available after log in) and on their YouTube channel.

Digimap also offers up to date land maps from the Geological Survey and SeaZone for marine maps, as well as historic maps from different time periods.
