UK: Cadcorp and the EDINA National Data Centre have announced that the latest version of the EDINA Digimap service has gone live. EDINA is the JISC national academic data centre based at the University of Edinburgh. Launched in 2000, the EDINA Digimap service specialises in the delivery of a number of geographical data resources over the internet to over 150 academic institutions. National digital map data ranging from Ordnance Survey (OS) products to geology, marine and historical maps can be accessed by staff and students free at point of use. Based on Cadcorp’s web mapping software GeognoSIS, the service also utilises a number of licences of Map Modeller, Cadcorp’s high-end desktop GIS system.
The new Cadcorp software has enabled EDINA to build an updated Digimap service resulting in faster response, greatly improved stability, cleaner looking maps and improved print functionality together with cost and time savings. It replaces other legacy software use by EDINA and forms the basis of a wider application service providing map data services to the academic community.
