Digimap and OS OpenData

The Government published details on 31st March of a package of Ordnance Survey datasets which are now available for free use and re-use under OS OpenData.

EDINA Digimap continues to provide ease and continuity of access to a whole range of geo-spatial datasets and will be adding all the OpenData products to the current range in the near future. Of particular note is that OS MasterMap, the large-scale vector data, is only available through Digimap.

Further details of the datasets available are given on the EDINA website at:

Digimap and OS Open Data

EDINA welcomes the release of OS OpenData and the opportunities this provides for the development of existing services (such as Unlock and Go-Geo!) and new ones for the benefit of teaching and research.
