Historic Digimap Help


Historic Digimap contains map data at scales ranging from 1:10,560 to 1:500 and dates ranging from 1843 to 1996; available for making maps online or for download. For a full list and detailed description see the Products Available page.

Historic Digimap has complete datasets for all the map series listed on the Products page, however not all the surveys have national coverage. First editions tend to have the most or even complete coverage, whereas the revisions tend to concentrate on area that change the most such as cities. Coverage maps are available in the service for each dataset. The town plans cover most of the towns and cities that had a population of around 4000 and over at the time of survey, a full list of towns covered is available to users in the help pages.

If you want to know what you can and can't do with the maps and data from Digimap please read the Landmark Licence Agreement.
