Aerial Digimap


Following an agreement made between EDINA and Getmapping Plc, EDINA have developed a subscription service to deliver aerial imagery data from Getmapping Plc to Tertiary Education.

Aerial Digimap is part of the Digimap Collection of on-line mapping and data delivery facilities. Users can view the data through their web browser, save the data for printing and download the aerial imagery data for use in geographical information systems.

Aerial Digimap, available since October 2016, is free at the point of use for staff and students at subscribing higher and further education institutions and research councils (special conditions apply). Details of how to access the service can be found here.

There are extensive help pages detailing how to use every aspect of the service and the data in your own GIS or CAD software:
