Map winner

December 15, 2000

Digimap, the vector mapping service provided by Edina (Edinburgh Data and Information Access) has won the Association for Geographic Information's Award for Technological Progress for 2000.

Digimap is the first to offer customisable vector mapping in real time for the whole of Britain over the web. Users can customise the content of their map to include anything from the full feature set to a single feature class.

Digimap provides access to Ordnance Survey data for Great Britain, including national coverage of Land-Line, which is not available anywhere else on the web: a pilot for historical mapping. Digimap is available to staff and students in subscribing universities.
