Digimap OS Collection Help


Digimap Ordnance Survey Collection contains maps at scales ranging from 1:1,250 up to 1:750,000 available for making maps online or for download. There are scanned raster maps which are digital versions of Ordnance Survey's paper maps as well as vector maps at a range of scales including OS MasterMap® the most detailed large scale mapping.

The service includes many other products from Ordnance Survey including postcodes, administrative boundaries, a gazetteer of place names and digital terrain models. For a full list and detailed description see the Products Available page in the OS Help.

Complete coverage of Great Britain is available for all the products listed, except for the Isle of Man, which is not covered by some data products. It is expected that the range of map datasets that are available through Digimap will increase over time.
