Digimap – service outage – 26-27 January 2015

To enable a roll-out of an upgrade to the platform’s registration system, Digimap services will be interrupted on 26-27 January 2015. Digimap explains:

New users will not be able to register for Digimap from 4pm on 26th Jan and all Digimap services will be unavailable all day on 27th Jan. Normal service will resume by 9am on 28th Jan.

More information about the outage and upgrade can be found on the Digimap blog.

Digimap: access extended to include the Environment collection

The library’s subscription to the Digimap service has now been extended to include the Environment collection (which joins the existing subscription to the Ordnance Survey, Historic, Geology and Discover services of Digimap). Access to this additional collection is initially available until the end of July 2014.

Environment Digimap offers two facilities: mapping and data download. The data available is raster and provides a snapshot of land cover for each of the years 1990, 2000 and 2007. Each data set is available at 25m and 1km resolutions. The exception to this is a vector version of the 2000 data set. The data are available in a range of formats depending on the year. Find out more on the Digimap site:

Individual collections (and sets of collections) within Digimap require a separate registration process prior to access. As this registration process can take several working days, access to collections is not immediate on the first visit, but will become available as the registration is accepted.

Shibboleth – Digimap – re-registration required

From 31 July, access to the Digimap service will be by University username and password (Shibboleth) only and no longer available via Athens username and password. All existing Digimap registrations will lapse on 31 July, and customers of the service will be required to re-register. (This is a requirement that EDINA has introduced for all its Digimap customer sites).

During the re-registration process, there is an opportunity to associate the new registration with a previously active one. New registrations will, of course, also be accepted.

Links in eSearch to the Digimap service now point to the Shibboleth login screen, so (re)-registrations can be actioned now, ahead of the 31 July switchover. A guide to the revised registration process is available in the LLR Shibboleth wiki. The existing guide to Digimap registration on the main LLR web site will need to be slightly revised to take into account changes in the registration process.

New collections: Digimap

Access to new additional collections on the Digimap platform has now been enabled: Historic Digimap and Geology Digimap.

Through Historic Digimap a registered vistor can:

View images of historic Ordnance Survey maps dating from 1843 to 1996. Up to 4 maps of the same location but different dates can be viewed simultaneously. Print maps and download image data for use in GIS and image processing software.

Through Geology Digimap a registered visitor can:

View and download contemporary British Geological Survey map data. 1:50,000, 1:250,000 and 1:625,000 scales are available in ESRI and MapInfo formats, plus information from the Lexicon of Named Rock Units.

These two new collections are provided in parallel with the existing Digimap Ordnance Survey collection. Members of NTU already registered to use Digimap will need to complete an additional registration for Geology Digimap before being able to make use of the service. Members of NTU registering with Digimap for the first time will now be able to register to use Geology Digimap and the Digimap Ordnance Survey collection through a single registration process.
